Edmonton police said Friday that a man in his 50s was facing charges in connection to the death of a woman in mid-December, 2015.
On Saturday, December 12, 2015, at about 10 p.m. police said it’s alleged two male suspects broke into a residence in the area of 107 Avenue and 106 Street and demanded valuables from the person inside, identified as Donat Albert, at knifepoint.
It was originally reported to police that one of the suspects involved in the robbery had discharged a firearm, however police have since confirmed that Albert fired the weapon.
As a result, Albert, 53, of Edmonton is facing charges including manslaughter with a firearm, careless storage of a firearm and obstruction.
The manslaughter charge stems from the shooting death of Yvette Lydia Morin, 28. She was found in a basement suite in medical distress.
She was treated on the scene and rushed to hospital, but she died a short time later.
In addition, RCMP said Johnathon Bass, 29, and Johnny Jackknife, both of Edmonton are facing charges of robbery, in addition to others.
