A man accused of second-degree murder in Prince Albert, Sask. was released from police custody earlier that day.

Officers arrested 29-year-old Everett Constant on Saturday following a "violent family dispute" at a residence on 28th Street W., according to the Prince Albert Police Service.

There, police found 51-year-old Beverly Constant dead.

But that wasn't the police's first encounter with Everett Constant on the weekend.

On Friday, officers were called to the same residence to help paramedics, and Constant was taken to hospital by police.

Police say Constant then assaulted hospital staff and was taken into custody and charged.

On Saturday morning, Constant was released with a promise to appear on the assault charge.

Later that day, police were back to the same home where they found Beverly Constant.

Everett Constant was arrested at the home.

Police have not confirmed the relationship between the victim and the accused.

Constant made his first appearance in Prince Albert Provincial Court on Monday.
