WINNIPEG – Police in Winnipeg made a series of disturbing discoveries when they checked on the well-being of a woman who called them over the weekend.
Investigators say they found the 35-year-old intoxicated inside a home early Sunday along with an injured dog.
Officers then checked a nearby home and discovered an 89-year-old woman dead.
Police allege the younger woman entered the older woman’s home late Saturday or early Sunday and stabbed her multiple times before returning home and attacking the dog.
Police say the women knew each other.
Melissa Joyce Gabriel of Winnipeg has been charged with manslaughter, killing or injuring animals and failing to comply with a probation order.
The dog was taken to a vet.
