Woman charged with manslaughter in northern Manitoba homicide

RCMP have re-arrested a woman they previously took into custody, and then released, following a September homicide in northern Manitoba.

The 26-year-old Leaf Rapids woman was charged with manslaughter this week in connection with a fatal stabbing in the community on Sept. 2.

At about 9:50 a.m. that day, RCMP were called about a reported stabbing at a home on Mukasew Bay in Leaf Rapids, about 750 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg.

They found an injured 23-year-old man there. He was rushed to hospital, but later died.

RCMP arrested the 26-year-old woman the same day, but she was later released without charges.

On Wednesday, RCMP arrested her again. She has now been charged with manslaughter and remains in custody.
