A 21-year-old man has been charged with murder after a 40-year-old Victoria woman was found dead in a home in southern Nanaimo earlier this week.
The Nanaimo RCMP announced Wednesday that Simon Baker, 21, has been formally charged with second-degree murder following the death of 40-year-old Denise Allick.
Allick was found dead in a home on Eighth Street, behind Park Elementary School, by the RCMP around 6 p.m. 22.00 on 20 June. Mounties had been called to the home after receiving a report of a disturbance.
Baker, who lives in Nanaimo, was arrested shortly after the incident and remains in police custody. He is scheduled to appear in court at 2 pm on Wednesday (June 22).
Law enforcement in BC rarely mentions victims, but in a press release issued Wednesday, Nanaimo told the RCMP that they are not sure why 40-year-old Allick was home at all, or whether she knew Baker.
The RCMP asks anyone who may have information as to why Allick was in Nanaimo to contact them immediately at 250-754-3245 and quote file 2022-21048.
