Winnipeg police have a woman in custody facing a charge of second-degree murder in connection with the city’s latest homicide.

The victim was identified Monday morning as Brandon Lee How, 39, of Winnipeg.

He was one of three people injured during an assault at an apartment block Friday night about 9 p.m. in the 2100 block of Portage Avenue. All three were taken to hospital, but How was the most seriously injured.

All three had been socializing when the two men got into a physical fight, with both suffering upper body injuries, police said.

The woman then intervened, with the result that one of the men suffered a stab wound to his upper body, police said.

Dawn Marie McFadyen, 32, is being detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.
