A 51-year-old woman has succumbed to her injuries in what RCMP are considering to be a homicide in Thompson, Manitoba.
Police were called to a residence the night of March 26 for the report of an assault. They found the victim severely injured, along with a 39-year-old man suffering from non-life threatening injuries.
Conan Lewis, 21, was arrested at the scene. He has been charged with second-degree murder and remains in custody. He is scheduled to appear in Thompson court on Thursday.
RCMP say the accused and the victim were known to each other.
