Friesen free on bail

A RM of Springfield resident accused of killing a well-respected Ste. Anne area dad nearly three times his age has been freed from custody pending trial.

On August 21 Dillyn Carl Nodwell Friesen, 20 was released on a $10,000 bond and ordered to live under house arrest at his parents’ home in Anola until his manslaughter case is resolved.

Friesen stands accused of fatally assaulting 58 year old Lothar Krieg outside his home in the RM of Tache on July 7. He is presumed innocent until proven otherwise in a court of law.

RCMP initially charged Friesen with aggravated assault but upgraded the charge after Krieg died in hospital three days later.

While the Crown opposed his being set free judge Tracey Lord granted bail.  A court-ordered ban prohibits details from Friesen’s recent bail hearing from being published.

As part of his bail conditions, Friesen was ordered to undergo a substance-abuse assessment, abstain from all drugs or booze and not own or possess any weapons.

He is also banned from being out in public unless supervised by his parents or a sibling.

Krieg, a married father of two is being mourned by many as a hardworking and trustworthy man who loved his family and the great outdoors dearly.
