Second degree murder charge laid following woman’s death

EDMONTON – The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) has charged a man with second degree murder, following a woman’s death earlier this week.

Shortly before 10 p.m. Monday, police and EMS were called to a home in the area of Warwick Road, in the Dunluce neighbourhood, where they found a 54-year-old woman suffering from serious injuries. Police say the injuries were “the result of an aggravated assault that the woman sustained within the home.”

The woman, who has since been identified as Aileen “Gina” Robinson, was taken to hospital where she died Wednesday afternoon.

An autopsy determined Robinson died of blunt force trauma.

Gilbert Paul Robinson has now been charged with second degree murder in the woman’s death. The 58-year-old is currently in police custody.

“They were husband and wife. They were and still are legally married but are estranged,” said Staff Sergeant Brad Goeson with the EPS Homicide Unit. “She was maintaining her own residence and he was living at the house on Warwick.”

Officers would not say if there was a history of violence between the victim and the accused.
