EDMONTON -- Police have charged a man in the 2018 murder of a woman in downtown Edmonton.
At approximately 9:40 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018, officers went to an apartment near 102 Avenue and 115 Street after calls requesting a welfare check on two residents.
Officers found a 69-year-old woman dead in the suite when they arrived, and an injured 70-year-old man. The man was treated and taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
An autopsy was conducted on the woman on Oct. 15, 2018, and was inconclusive pending toxicology results.
Police say further investigations have since confirmed the death was a homicide.
On Wednesday, police charged 73-year-old Francois Belzile with first-degree murder of his wife, Christiane Belzile.
The cause of death is not being released at this time, said EPS.
