St. John's man charged with manslaughter in connection with death of 55-year-old woman
A 27-year-old St. John's man has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of a 55-year-old St. John's woman in February 2022, says the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary.
According a press release issued Wednesday afternoon by the RNC, officers responded to reports of a disturbance at a home on Hunt's Lane in St. John's on Jan. 2, 2022. At the home, they found a woman with a serious injury. Police say she died from complications resulting from the injury on Feb. 24, 2022.
The RNC says the office of the chief medical examiner determined the death was a homicide. Police also say the accused knew the deceased.
The accused was not identified in the press release. A police spokesperson said it's because the charge hasn't been sworn to in court yet.
The accused is scheduled to appear in provincial court in mid-April.
