Police have made an arrest in the death of 28-year-old Monica Burns.
Burns’ body was found on a snowmobile trail about 15 kilometres outside of Prince Albert on Jan. 17.
Thirty-eight-year-old Todd Daniel McKeaveney of Prince Albert has been charged with second-degree murder in relation to the death.
He was arrested on Wednesday and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday in Prince Albert.
Police do not believe the victim and suspect were known to each other.
RCMP spokesperson Mandy Maier says investigators appreciated the support of Burns’ family.
“Monica’s family demonstrated an unbelievable level of cooperation and understanding throughout the entire investigation, and their support of the investigators has been nothing short of amazing.”
Maier also says the investigation is ongoing.
“We can say that all the coverage and tips and information that we have received from the public was crucial to moving the investigation forward.”
Mounties had earlier appealed to the public for information about two large black area rugs found with the woman’s body.
