A Saskatchewan man has been charged for murdering two Native women.

Clayton Bo Eichler, 32, is accused of murdering Kelly Nicole Goforth, 21. Her body was found on September 25, 2013, a day after she had gone missing.

Authorities also charged Eichler with the murder of Richele Lee Bear, 23. Her body has yet to be discovered but she went missing in August 2013.

“We have many indigenous women who are missing and later found murdered in Canada,” Erica Beaudin of Regina Treaty Status Indian Services told Global News. “We will not rest until we bring our women home and if necessary the persons are held responsible for their deaths.”

Authorities aren't saying if Eichler is a serial killer.
