A 25-year-old man is charged with second-degree murder in the death of a man whose body was found in a central Edmonton home last week.

Police went to a home near 113th Avenue and 91st Street Thursday after being contacted around 7:10 a.m. that day about a missing man.

When officers entered the Alberta Avenue residence, they found the body of 57-year-old Edgardo Vista.

An autopsy was conducted Saturday and determined Vista died as a result of blunt force trauma, police said Tuesday in a news release.

Police arrested and charged the 25-year-old on Monday.

The accused and victim knew each other, police said.
