CALGARY – A man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of a Calgary mother who was beaten so badly that her father could not recognize her when he found her body.

Isaiah Riel Rider had been charged with second-degree murder in the October 2015 death of Christa Cachene, but entered the plea yesterday to the lesser count following negotiation between the defence and Crown.

In an agreed statement of facts read in court, the 26-year-old woman dropped her children off with her father and invited some friends to a party at her home — a group that included Rider.

While there, Cachene got into an argument with the accused and stabbed him.

Punches were thrown and the woman was knocked down before Rider stomped on her chest and head.

He later dumped her body down the basement stairs before using bleach to clean up the blood.

An autopsy determined Cachene died of multiple blunt-force trauma injuries.

About two weeks later, after an arrest warrant had been issued, Rider and four friends attacked three people who had stopped to help them after their car broke down near Ponoka.

Rider later went to a home and threatened the owner before fleeing in her Jeep, but he was arrested after the vehicle drove over a spike belt.

Rider pleaded guilty to four counts of assault and theft of a motor vehicle for those incidents.

Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Suzanne Bensler has ordered a Gladue report, which factors in an indigenous person’s life that may have contributed to their criminal history.

Sentencing arguments will be heard on October 16th. (CBC)
