Charges laid in the death of an Armstrong woman

Charges have been laid in the almost year-old death of an Armstrong woman.

On Nov. 27, 2013, the body of Jillian McKinty, a 27-year-old mother of two, was found in her Wolfenden Terrace home.

“This particular case initially appeared to be a sudden death but after the autopsy, flags were raised,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.

An investigation has been underway since that time, and on Wednesday, charges of manslaughter and theft under $5,000 were laid against Logan Scott, 31, of Salmon Arm.

“There was an exhaustive investigation to bring the case to this point and obviously there was good work by our team,” said Molendyk, adding that about 20 officers were involved in the process at one point.

Molendyk would not get into specific details about the possible relationship between the victim and suspect or the theft charge.

“Some items were removed from the residence,” he said.

Scott was scheduled to appear in Vernon Provincial Court Friday.
