Winnipeg police have made an arrest in the city’s latest homicide.
Norma Andrews, 28, was killed on September 21 at a home in the 500 block of Balmoral Street.
Officers located Andrews suffering from “severe upper body trauma,” according to a police spokesperson.
Police issued an arrest warrant on Thursday for Jesse Jordan Gamblin, 20. He was taken into custody later that day and charged with second-degree murder.
“I am happy to hear that an arrest has been made,” said Larry Andrews, Norma’s father, in a statement issued by Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak Inc. (MKO).
“I am hopeful that justice will be served. I hope that the perpetrator of this violent crime against my daughter doesn’t just receive a slap on the wrist. Norma deserves justice. This is a very difficult time and I am asking the media to continue to respect our privacy.”
