A woman has been charged in the killing of her common-law husband following a months-long investigation, Vancouver police have announced.
Shane Tolmie, 26, was found suffering from a stab wound inside his Downtown Eastside apartment in June 2018. He later died in hospital.
Shannon Watts, 25, was arrested at the scene but later released pending a further investigation. The B.C. Prosecution Service has now approved a second-degree murder charge.
Watts is due back in provincial court in Vancouver on Nov. 13.
