Charges have been stayed against a man accused in the deaths of an Alberta couple who disappeared almost four years ago.
Alberta Justice confirms that it is not going ahead with two counts of first-degree murder against Travis Vader.
Lyle and Marie McCann of St. Albert, a bedroom community north of Edmonton, were reported missing in July 2010.
The seniors were last seen alive filling up their motorhome for a trip to British Columbia.
The burned-out vehicle was found west of Edmonton two days later, but the couple's bodies have never been found.
A stay means the Crown has the option of reactivating the charges in the next year if new evidence comes up.
