Thereae Racette-Beaulieu pleads to one count of attempted murder, other charges

Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - The man accused of shooting an RCMP officer near Onanole last August has pled guilty in Brandon provincial court.

Therae Racette-Beaulieu entered guilty pleas to one count of attempted murder, as well as to breaking and entering, stealing firearms and theft of a motor vehicle.

Beaulieu and three others were involved in a series of break-ins throughout the Onanole area, which culminated in the theft of a truck, interception by police, and the shooting incident August 29.

RCMP Corporal Graeme Kingdon suffered a fractured skull in the shooting.

A massive manhunt after the shooting ended the next afternoon in Neepawa.

Three men from Portage la Prairie, 21 year old Tommy Edward Beaulieu, 30-year old Shane Donovan Beaulieu, and 23-year old Delaney Marcus Houle, were charged with two counts each of breaking and entering, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and weapons-related offenses related to their participating in the crime spree.

Racette-Beaulieu’s sentencing is set for March 21 at the Neepawa courthouse.
