The Crown Prosecutor has recommended no charges be laid in the case of the strangling death of a Camrose caregiver in Feb. 2011.
On Feb. 13, 2011, Valerie Wolski, 41, was strangled to death by a man in her care.
Wolski had been working for the Canadian Mental Health Association at the time.
The patient in her care, Terrence Saddleback, was initially charged with manslaughter – but was later found unfit to stand trial.
Alberta Justice told CTV News the evidence didn’t meet the guidelines to proceed with charges.
The development comes days before the two-year window for the Crown to decide to lay charges was about to end – the deadline was Feb. 11, 2013.
However, a fatality inquiry will still be held on the case.
