The British Columbia police is charging a former Timmins man with second degree murder. 29-year-old Ryan Armstrong is also being charged with indignity to a human body. The charges are in connection to a woman’s burnt body found on a remote road outside of Vancouver. The victim was a 28-year-old from Illinois.

Police aren’t saying what the motive behind the woman’s death was, but are saying the two were in a relationship. However, the exact nature isn’t clear.
