Three people will make their first court appearance next Thursday in the death of Ryan Lane.

Sheena Cuthill — the mother of Lane's child — her husband Timothy Rempel, and his brother Wilhelm, are all charged with first-degree murder.

Police say more charges are pending against all three and say both Timothy and Wilhelm have a history with police.

"This is a very large investigation," Staff Sgt. Grant Miller said. 

"It involved easily more than 100 police officers at different times in the investigation. To that end I think our search of the area, the 13,000 acres that we searched was a vital component in completing this investigation successfully and the resources that went into that, we can't thank enough."

Investigators told reporters on Friday the case centres on visitation rights of Lane's child.

They also believe Lane was lured to a parking lot on Country Hills Boulevard in early February and killed less than 24 hours later.

Police won't comment on cause of death, but have found evidence of a murder weapon.

"We wanted to make sure we had the evidence in place to support that charge," Miller said, adding investigators have spoken with Lane’s family.

"These results bring some relief to them but again, nothing we do can bring their son back," Miller said.

The investigation spanned nine months and cost more than $1 million.
