A first official court appearance for a man accused of killing his girlfriend in Okotoks last month. Carlos Bisana Pelaez faces one count of first-degree murder in the case. Back on April 17th, police were called to an Okotoks apartment building, where they found a man and woman with serious injuries, believed to be stab wounds. Teresa Reyes Enrique, 27, of the Phillipines was later pronounced dead while Pelaez was rushed to hospital. He was released, then taken into custody and charged last Thursday. At the time of arrest, officers credited tips from the public, especially those from the Filipino community. Pelaez will be back in court on May 29th.
