Two Calgary men are facing charges for allegedly helping a first-degree murder suspect flee the country two years ago.

Nathan Gervais had been a suspect in the 2013 murder of 18-year-old Lukas Strasser-Hird, who was killed outside a Calgary nightclub after being stabbed multiple times.

Gervais had been awaiting trial in 2016 when he fled to Vietnam, though he was eventually returned to Canada and arrested in February 2018.

Now, two other Calgary men are facing charges for allegedly helping Gervais flee Canada by forging a passport for him to travel with.

A release from the Calgary Police Service states that 27-year old Sean Airey and 21-year-old Marshall Quillian, both of Calgary, are facing charges that include obstruction of justice, forging a passport, making a false statement to procure a passport, and being an accessory after the fact to murder.

The men are expected to appear in court on Monday, January 14.
