Inmate's death at Edmonton Remand Centre declared homicide

Inmate's death at Edmonton Remand Centre declared homicide The death of a male inmate at the Edmonton Remand Centre Saturday has been declared a homicide following an autopsy. Police were called to the centre in north Edmonton around 5:45 p.m. on Saturday. Officers found 57-year-old Bruce Donald Windsor unresponsive. Windsor was declared dead by paramedics on scene. Homicide investigators believe there was a fight between Windsor and another inmate. Police are not releasing the cause of death. Windsor was a known sex offender.

A man charged with the murder of his domestic partner made his first court appearance in Saskatoon Monday morning.

Jamie Smallchild, 25, was charged Sunday by the RCMP with second-degree murder in the death of Jessica Cameron, 33.

Several members of Cameron's family, including her aunt Berni Thomas, watched Smallchild from the public gallery in Saskatoon provincial court Monday morning.

Cameron was a mother of seven children, Thomas said outside the courthouse.

"She's very loved and very missed," she said. "My heart aches for her children."

Jessica Simpson has date night every week

Jessica Simpson has date night every week Jessica Simpson and her husband Eric Johnson make sure they have a date night at least once a week.

"We're a community," Thomas said. "We're all a family. I'm related to Jamie too. So this is hard."

She said Cameron's family wanted Smallchild to see them there.

"I wanted Jamie to see we're here for her. We're her voice now," Thomas said.

What police have said so far

Police have given a brief account of the investigation leading up to Smallchild's arrest.

Early Saturday morning, Rosthern RCMP members found a green minivan in the woods near Beardy's First Nation, located about 90 kilometres northeast of Saskatoon. The minivan had minor front-end damage on it.

Smallchild and Cameron were in the driver and passenger seats, respectively. Cameron was pronounced dead at the scene, while Smallchild had only minor injuries.

"Police officers observed inconsistencies between the injuries sustained by the occupants of the vehicle and the damage on the minivan," according to the RCMP press release.

Officers charged Smallchild with murder on Sunday.

Smallchild will next appear in court on July 23.

A forensic pathologist is expected to conduct an autopsy on Cameron later this week.

Witness tells Calgary court he heard shot that hit tourist, can't say who fired.
CALGARY — A witness to the shooting of a German tourist driving down an Alberta highway says he remembers hearing a loud clap, but is unable to say who pulled the trigger. The man was testifying at the trial of his brother — a teen from the Stoney Nakoda First Nation — who was charged last August after a 60-year-old tourist was shot in the head by someone in a passing car west of Calgary. Horst Stewin survived, but suffered debilitating injuries. The teen, who cannot be identified because he was 16 at the time, is on trial for charges that include aggravated assault.
