Red Deer woman arrested in relation to murder of Grande Prairie man

A Red Deer woman was arrested in Edmonton last week in relation to the murder of a Grande Prairie man.

The 32-year-old woman from Red Deer was arrested and is being charged with murder after an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Tyler Johnson.

In March, police discovered human remains in a house that had burned down near Maskwacis. As a result of further investigation and the results of the autopsy in March 2021, Alberta RCMP Major Crimes identified the human remains as belonging to Johnson, who had been reported missing.

The woman is set to appear in Wetaskiwin provincial court on Oct. 26.
