  • Burnaby man charged with 2nd degree murder

A Burnaby man has been charged with second-degree murder for his involvement in a stabbing in Vancouver earlier this month.

Vancouver police say the 29-year-old suspect was arrested on April 4th, a day after a 49-year-old woman was found dead just north of Fraserview Golf Course.

The woman died at the scene, and police say the B-C Prosecution Service has approved the murder charge against the suspect.

Police say the victim and the accused knew each other, but no other details of their relationship have been released.
