A 30-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with a deadly stabbing in 2015.
On Thursday, the Edmonton Police Service said Burton William Baptiste Jr. has been charged in connection with the death of 29-year-old Casey Darrell Crier. According to police, Baptiste is already “incarcerated for unrelated matters.”
At around 8:23 a.m. on March 22, 2015, officers were called to reports of a body in a suite in the area of 81 Avenue and 178 Street. Two days later, an autopsy found Crier died as a result of stab wounds.
In addition to being charged with murder, Baptiste is also accused of possessing a dangerous weapon in connection with the stabbing.
