Children present in Abbotsford slaying

24 hours

Two children were home when Abbotsford police found their slain mother’s body Wednesday. A man, believed to be the woman’s estranged partner, was arrested.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the two children didn’t see the 40-year-old’s body and they are now satisfied the kids are safe.

Charges have yet to be laid. A 40-year-old man was in the home and has been arrested. Police were tipped off by a family member of the woman who had a “gut feeling” something was wrong, since it had been too long since the relative spoke to the victim in person.

“Regrettably, we suspect it was a result of a domestic situation that this victim lost her life,” MacDonald said.
