Victim's family protests as killer granted parole, continues work to build emergency shelter Jessica Martel was killed by her common-law partner in 2009.

The family of a woman killed by her common-law partner 10 years ago is expressing their disappointment over a decision to grant her killer parole as they continue to build a shelter for those fleeing domestic violence.

The Parole Board of Canada has granted James Urbaniuk unsupervised weekend release followed by release to a halfway house after three months, said a news release from the Jessica Martel Memorial Foundation (JMMF).

Urbaniuk and Martel had been in a 10-year common-law relationship at the time of the killing. Martel had tried to leave Urbaniuk in the past but had always been persuaded to return. The day she died, Martel called her mother and said she was going to leave Urbaniuk.

At 7:30 p.m. that night, Urbaniuk called his mother and said he thought he had killed Martel.

Martel’s stepfather found her bruised body, covered with blood, near the entrance to their home.

“We, as a family, are determined to move forward despite this outcome. We will no longer allow his actions to define our family, to prevent healing, or to not experience the joys that comes with a life well-lived,” said Martel’s mother, Lynne Rosychuk, in the release.

Since Martel’s death, the foundation set up in her name has begun to raise funds to build a safe house in the Sturgeon region to support the victims of domestic violence and their families. Jessie’s House is expected to open in 2020.

The foundation is currently running a campaign to raise $3 million by January to construct, furnish and operate the house.
