Second Degree Murder Charge In South End Death

A second degree murder charge has been laid in the death of a woman in the city's South End.

53-year-old Joseph Paul Irving appeared in provincial court in connection with the death of 45-year-old Cynthia Irving who was found unresponsive and not breathing after police were called to 205 Carmarthen Street around noon on Sunday. An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of her death. 

City Police Sergeant Jay Henderson confirmed the two knew each other.

The matter has been set over until April 14 so Irving can undergo a mental health assessment.
