  • Print

A trial began today for a 34-year-old woman charged with the May 2010 stabbing death of Solomon Turner in a Point Douglas rooming house.

Wanda Bruce, 34, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of second-degree murder for her alleged involvement in Turner’s death.

Turner, 46, was found in the basement of a rooming house on Austin Street on May 10, 2011.

Bruce was the second person charged in connection with Turner’s death. Lloyd Lindsay, 50, was also charged with second-degree murder but later pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was given an eight-year sentence.

At today’s trial in Court of Queen’s Bench before a jury of eight women and four men, court was told Winnipeg Police were unable to find any physical evidence linking Bruce to Turner’s death.

The trial is expected to continue for several days.
