Police chief apologizes for language used to describe victim in homicide arrest
Winnipeg Police Chief Danny Smyth apologized Tuesday for the language used in recent police statements about the 2014 killing of Angela Marie Poorman.
Poorman, a 29-year-old mother of three, was stabbed to death in the North End on Dec. 14, 2014. On Nov. 29, 2016, Winnipeg police announced they had charged an 18-year-old man with second-degree murder in Poorman's death. He could not be named because he was a minor at the time of the homicide.
