Vernon woman killed in Alberta

A former Vernon resident has been identified as the City of Edmonton’s 15th homicide victim of 2012.

Alexandra Noble, 25, a former Fulton Secondary student, was killed July 25.

The Edmonton Police Service reports that, shortly before 6 p.m. Central time on July 25, a 27-year-old man arrived at a police station and alerted officers to attend an apartment complex.

Upon arrival at an apartment, officers discovered an unresponsive, 25-year-old woman.

“Members initiated CPR and were able to revive her. She was transported to hospital but died within an hour of arrival,” said Edmonton Police Service spokesperson Noreen Remtulla.

The medical examiner has ruled Noble’s death to be a homicide. The autopsy determined the cause of death to be due to strangulation.

Edmonton Police Service has charged an Edmonton man in relation to Noble’s death.

Trevor Toews, 27, has been charged with second degree murder. His first court appearance is on Aug. 9.
