A man charged with second degree murder has made his first court appearance.

Red Deer RCMP and the RCMP’s Southern Alberta Major Crimes Unit (MCU), have charged 26-year-old Jordan Koizumi of Red Deer with one count of second degree murder in the death of 50-year-old Tina-Marie Pfeiffer, also of Red Deer.

At approximately 3:56 a.m. on Oct. 27th, members of the Red Deer RCMP Detachment were dispatched to a residence in the area of West Park Crescent where they discovered a deceased woman inside a residence.

It was while police were at the scene that they received a report of a man who was nearby and walking down the street in his underwear. Police made a patrol to the area where it was reported that the man was seen and located Koizumi, who was taken into custody at that time.

The investigation into Pfeiffer’s murder included assistance from the RCMP’s Southern Alberta MCU, Red Deer RCMP General Investigation Section (GIS), Red Deer Forensic Identification Section (FIS) and the “K” Division Special Tactical Operations Unit (STO).

On Oct. 28th, an autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Calgary determined that Pfeiffer’s death was a homicide.

Koizumi remains in custody and will return to court on Nov. 30th.
