Man Charged in Weekend Homicide

The Calgary Police Service has charged a man in relation to a weekend homicide.

At approximately 12:30 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 14, 2014, police responded to the 200 block of Holy Cross Lane S.W., for a report of a woman in medical distress. When emergency crews arrived, they found a woman in her 40s dead on scene.

Investigators believe the two were in a relationship and this was a domestic-related homicide.

The victim’s identity will be released pending formal identification and an autopsy scheduled for today, Monday, Sept. 15, 2014.

Scott Monrow FERGUSON, 24, of Calgary, has been charged with second-degree murder. He will next appear in court this morning.

This is Calgary’s 26th homicide of 2014.

A media availability is expected to be held following the results of the autopsy, later this afternoon.
