One woman is dead and another woman faces a charge of manslaughter following a weekend house party.
Police were not naming the 37-year-old woman who was stabbed at 570 Spence St. early Saturday morning.
A 23-year-old woman was taken into custody and faces manslaughter charges, a Winnipeg police spokesman said Sunday. He said police would not identify the homicide victim.
The home where the stabbing death occurred is on Spence Street between Sargent and Notre Dame avenues.
Several area residents the Free Press spoke to Saturday said that at least one floor of the house, which appears to be a duplex, was frequented by drug dealers within the last several years.
"It's sad," said one resident, who lives further down Spence Street and says he used to visit friends who lived in the house. "I don't know what's happening to this street."
