David McKay and Cyndie Markel-Rempel face murder and manslaughter charges

Warrant issued for Chilliwack woman accused of manslaughter after court no-show

Cyndie Markel-Rempel charged in death of John Anderson last July; co-accused David McKay, charged with murder, remains in custody

The female half of a couple accused in the summer 2016 killing of 40-year-old John “Mikey” Anderson was a no-show for her Tuesday morning court appearance and a bench warrant was issued for her arrest.

Cyndie Arryelle Markel-Rempel was not in custody on the manslaughter charges and had made a number of court appearances in recent weeks. David McKay, who is charged with second-degree murder in the case, remains in custody.

Both were on the lam after the killing in a known drug house on Glenwood Drive near Bernard Elementary School on July 6, 2016.

It was there that Anderson was was found in medical distress by police and brought to Chilliwack General Hospital (CGH). He was pronounced dead just after 1:30 p.m.

The RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) quickly released the name of the victim and asked for the public’s assistance to locate McKay and Markel-Rempel.

The two didn’t go far and Markel-Rempel was arrested just after 2:30 p.m. downtown on July 8 wearing a T-shirt that read “Girl on the run.”

The 37-year-old McKay, who is well-known to police, was arrested after 3 p.m. that same day.
