A 19-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of another young man at Mill Woods Park.

The body of Jordan Dawson, also 19, had been found Aug. 28 at about 6 p.m. in the park near 66th Street and 23rd Avenue.

An autopsy later confirmed he died of a stab wound and police issued a plea for information about Dawson's whereabouts earlier that day.

In a Wednesday news release, Edmonton police said they arrested a man at his home and have charged him with second-degree murder.
