Woman accused of murder appears in court

  • Feb. 29, 2012 4:06 p.m.

A woman charged with the death of a Red Deer man during the Christmas holidays briefly appeared in court last Friday.

Stephanie Walroth, 43, has been charged with one count of second-degree murder and one count of obstruction of justice.

On Dec. 25 at 2:10 p.m. police received a request to check on the well-being of the caller’s father. The caller, who does not live in Red Deer, sought police assistance after attempting to reach their father by phone for several days.

RCMP attended a residence on the 5800 block of 61 St. in the Riverside Meadows neighbourhood of Red Deer to check on the well being of 58-year-old Shaughn Lumley.

Lumley was found deceased by police officers. He had multiple injuries that were consistent with a struggle and there was evidence in the residence that indicated a struggle had taken place.

Later in the afternoon of Dec. 28 police arrested Walroth, who was an acquaintance of the victim.

She will make another appearance in Red Deer provincial court this Friday.
