Author:

A man from Saskatchewan's Yellow Quill First Nation has pleaded guilty to criminal negligence causing death for allowing his two young daughters to freeze to death in a snowy field earlier this year.

Christopher Pauchay, 24, previously pleaded not guilty to the charge in a case that made headlines across Canada after three-year-old Kaydance and one-year-old Santana Pauchay disappeared on a freezing night on the reserve, about 280 kilometres east of Saskatoon.
