On Tuesday, 30-year-old Jason Glenn Dickout was charged with second-degree murder. He was also charged with possession of a dangerous weapon.

The death was deemed Edmonton’s 14th homicide of the year.

Police said they would not release the victim’s name because “it does not serve an investigative purpose, there is no risk to public safety and the EPS has a duty to protect the privacy rights of the victims and their families.”
