Early Friday morning, Maskwacis RCMP responded to a report of two men attacked with edged weapons. One man had non-life-threatening injuries and the other died of his injuries later that morning at Ponoka Hospital.

On Monday night, the chief medical examiner’s office in Calgary ruled the death a homicide.
