VANCOUVER – A mother of three was killed in an alleged domestic dispute in Clearwater Sunday night.
The victim, Angila Wilson, was a mother to a six-year-old, four-year-old and a two-year-old. All three children are safe and unharmed.
The suspect, identified as Iain Scott, is believed to be her common-law husband and is now in custody. No charges have been laid but he was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
Wilson was a licensed practical nurse at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital and had recently told friends she feared for her safety after leaving Scott.
“He threw ice crystals at her, at her windshield, she had to replace that,” said Wilson’s co-worker Robyn Murray. “A girlfriend of ours was with her at the time and seen it and was shocked at how violent he was.”
But friends are remembering her as a loving person and mother.
“Very very caring, would do anything for you, easy to talk to, so good with her kids and other children,” said Murray.
The incident reportedly started Sunday night in Angila’s home in an area known as ‘The Flats’, which is close to the south end of town. It is believed an altercation took place and Angila was killed. The suspect then reportedly fled to his home near Joyce Road.
Eight hours later Scott gave himself up to police.
RCMP are treating the incident as a homicide and it is being investigated by the South East District RCMP Major Crime Unit.
Police are not saying if Wilson had a restraining order against Scott.
“Right now it’s jeopardizing the investigation and it’s premature to comment on that,” said RCMP Cpl. Dave Tyreman.
