After a woman was murdered outside Spruce Grove last weekend, RCMP have arrested a suspect.
RCMP's Major Crimes Unit has laid charges following a homicide investigation.
On November 17, Parkland RCMP responded to a report of a woman in medical distress at Township Road 532A and Range Road 274. Once police arrived on scene, they discovered that 33-year-old Saladina Vivancos was dead. An autopsy later confirmed that she had been murdered, and Major Crimes launched an investigation.
Police arrested 36-year-old Blake Jolicoeur of Spruce Grove, and have charged him with second degree murder in relation to Vivancos' death. A judicial interim release hearing has been held, and Jolicoeur remains in police custody. He will appear in Spruce Grove Provincial Court today.
