A young man is facing charges of second-degree murder after a body was found in a northern Manitoba first nation earlier this week.
On Thursday, Island Lake RCMP were called to a home in St. Theresa Point, about 610 km northeast of Winnipeg.
They found the body of a 35-year-old woman inside, who hasn’t been identified.
Mounties’ investigation has led them to charge 18-year-old Kelton Wood in connection with the death.
The investigation is still ongoing with the help of RCMP Major Crime Unit and Thompson Forensic Identification Services.
St. Theresa Point is a community of just over 3,000 people, and is only accessible by boat or plane in the summer, and by ice road in the winter.
