DEATH INVESTIGATED

Police responded to an apartment in the 4900 block of 50 Street on July 27 at about 5 a.m. after Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel reported the death of a 35-year- old Stettler woman in her home. A thorough investigation was undertaken with the assistance of the Red Deer Forensic Identification Section and the “K” Division Major Crime Unit.

The cause of death has not been determined, and further testing will occur, including an autopsy under the direction of the Medical Examiner’s Office in Calgary.

He will appear in Stettler Provincial Court on July 30 to enter pleas.

COLLISION

Two vehicles collided on Highway 12 at Botha on July 24. An eastbound Honda minivan, pulling a tent trailer, struck a southbound Nissan car when the car crossed the highway and into the path of the minivan.
