Charges laid in stabbing death of Edmonton-area teenager

Friends and family of a slain Sherwood Park teen are remembering him as a kind person who lived his short life to the fullest.

SHERWOOD PARK — Friends and family of a slain Sherwood Park teen are remembering him as a kind person who lived his short life to the fullest.

Police, meanwhile, announced they have charged an 18-year-old Edmonton man with first-degree murder in the death.

Blaine McNally’s body was found at a Sherwood Park townhouse around 3 a.m. Sunday.

The 18-year-old died from apparent stab wounds.

Shortly after arriving on scene police tracked a suspect to the nearby Sherwood Park Mall where he was arrested without incident.

Blaine’s mother, Tammy McNally, said amidst their grief, the family was cherishing fond memories of the teen.

“We are embracing the 18 wonderful years we were so lucky to have him for and he filled such a short time with so many laughs and memories,” she wrote in an email on behalf of the family.

“He lived every single second of his short life going as fast as he could and touching and helping as many people as possible.”

Police have charged Justin Anthony Faltermeier, 18, from Edmonton with first-degree murder.

He will appear in Sherwood Park provincial court on July 29.
