Preliminary inquiry begins for man charged in death of Linnea Vienotte
A preliminary inquiry is scheduled to begin in Grenada Monday for a 26-year-old man charged in the death of a New Brunswick woman who disappeared after going jogging with her dog.
Akim Frank is charged with non-capital murder, which carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
Frank turned himself into police in December and the body of 36-year-old Linnea Veinotte was found hours later in a field in the south end of Grenada.
Police say Veinotte, a mother of two young boys who’d moved to the island to be with her family, died from blunt force trauma as a result of being struck by a vehicle.
