Two men have been charged with first-degree murder in the death of a Winnipeg woman stabbed outside of her St. Vital apartment on June 20.

Winnipeg police say Kaila Tran’s death was planned, having been arranged by her boyfriend who had another man allegedly carry out the act. Police say the couple had a dispute a short time prior to the attack.

The incident happened as Tran, 26, was walking to her vehicle at about 7 a.m. in the 100 block of Clayton Drive. She suffered upper body stab wounds and succumbed to her injuries in hospital. Numerous people nearby witnessed the attack.

Tran’s boyfriend, Drake David Moslenko, 27, and Treyvonne Anthony Warner Willis, 20, were arrested on Tuesday and remain in custody.

Police were also able to recover what they believe was the weapon used in the attack after searching the Seine River.
