A 31-year-old woman is in custody charged with murder in connection with the recent killing of a Winnipeg senior inside his St. Vital-area apartment suite.
Police have charged Leanne May Henderson with second-degree murder in connection to the death of Keith George McFee, 69.
McFee was found dead in his Fernwood Avenue suite Friday, having suffered suspicious upper-body injuries.
Court records show police believe he was killed sometime between Dec. 26 and Dec. 27.
That's the time frame friends say they last heard from McFee.
Henderson is also accused of stealing McFee's vehicle and is accused of theft over $5,000.
McFee's friend and neighbour, Wes Smith, told the Free Press Sunday he hadn't seen McFee's station wagon parked in its usual spot for at least a week.
Henderson was arrested Monday and is now in custody at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.
Police have signalled they'll offer further details of their homicide investigation at a news conference this morning.
