SASKATOON _ The father of two young girls found frozen to death in a snowy field on Saskatchewan's Yellow Quill reserve goes on trial tomorrow.

Christopher Pauchay had allegedly been drinking on the cold January night he left home with his daughters in tow.

The bodies of three-year-old Kaydance and her one-year-old sister Santana were later found wearing only diapers and T-shirts.

Pauchay has already pleaded not guilty to one count of criminal negligence causing death in the case.

About 900 residents on the reserve east of Saskatoon are also gearing up for an election later this month.

The reserve has been plagued for decades by alcohol abuse, high unemployment and a lack of suitable housing.
