Teen accused as accessory in Medicine Hat slayings appears in court

The young woman charged in connection to a triple slaying in Medicine Hat made a brief court appearance Thursday.

Kacy Lancaster, 19, was accompanied by her mother. Lancaster is charged with being an accessory after the fact to murder.

Earlier this month, Lancaster was released on a $25,000 surety on her mother’s home. At the time, Judge W.V. Hembroff ruled Lancaster could only leave the home for legal or medical reasons.

The bodies of two adults and their son were discovered in their Medicine Hat home on April 23.

The couple’s 12-year-old daughter and Jeremy Allan Steinke, 23, have each been charged with three counts of first-degree murder.

Lancaster is accused of attempting to eradicate evidence, giving a false alibi and helping the two accused to flee.

Lancaster will be back in court on June 22.
