Martin Munro, 36, and Jolyn Ten Hove, 37, are facing second degree murder charges after William McDonald’s body was found in a Fairview residence early Thursday morning.
The two suspects will appear in Red Deer provincial court on Monday.
Early Thursday morning, Red Deer city RCMP and Red Deer Emergency Services were dispatched to 2 Forest Close following a 911 call.
Police say it’s alleged a physical altercation took place between two men in the residence.
McDonald, 40, originally from New Brunswick, was found dead upon police arrival.
An autopsy on the victim is expected to be performed in Calgary on Friday. Police are not yet releasing his cause of death, however they have determined that no weapons were used in the murder.
A neighbour in the area, who did not want to be named, said the Close is generally quiet although he has noticed an increase in police presence recently and that the victim had not been living there long.
Red Deer city RCMP continue to investigate the homicide with assistance from the Red Deer city RCMP General Investigation Section, Red Deer RCMP Forensic Identification Section and Red Deer Major Crimes Unit.
