A 26-year-old man was charged with second-degree murder Tuesday afternoon after a man was killed earlier that morning at a house in Armstrong's Point.
Police say the men knew each other, and had both been at the residence on the 100 block of Middle Gate when a dispute broke out, leading to a fatal stabbing.
When police arrived at about 7:40 a.m., they located the deceased man, who has now been identified as Michael Bruyere, 34, from Winnipeg.
As homicide detectives encircled the residence, a house being used as a rental property, the investigation spread across the city. At about 4:20 p.m., police arrested a man at a convenience store on the 600 block of McPhillips Street.
Jordan James Bonwick faces one charge of second-degree murder, and has been detained in custody.
In 2017, Bonwick pleaded guilty to one count of unlawfully being in a dwelling or house, and was sentenced to three years of unsupervised probation.
