Melinda Gladys Charles.

A Deschambault Lake man has been charged with second-degree murder and interfering with a human body in the recent killing of a Stanley Mission woman.

Forty-seven-year-old Melinda Gladys Charles was initially reported missing last Thursday after last being seen in the Deschambault Lake area.

On Monday, RCMP reported that she had been found dead and that her death was considered suspicious.

Mounties have now arrested 44-year-old Daniel Moses Ballantyne in connection to her death.

Police say they knew each other.

Ballantyne is scheduled to make his first court appearance tomorrow morning in La Ronge.
