Two leaders of an isolated religious sect in southeastern BC have been charged with polygamy.

Winston Blackmore and James Oler lead separate sects in the religious commune known as Bountiful, where residents follow a fundamentalist form of Mormonism that still holds polygamy as a tenet of the faith.

Earlier polygamy charges against the two were thrown out in 2009 over how the province chose a special prosecutor.

The new charges were approved by Peter Wilson, who was named as a special prosecutor in January of 2012.
