A 73-year-old man is facing charges of second-degree murder after a man was found dead inside a house in southwest Edmonton.
Officers responded to a domestic dispute at a residence near 53 Avenue and Whitemud Road at around 7:45 p.m. on Friday.
They discovered a man dead inside the house.
On Saturday, police said Roberto Robles, 73, is facing charges of second-degree murder and two counts of possession of an offensive weapon.
The victim was identified as Armando Cosmea-Aspillaga, 38. Police said Cosmea-Aspillaga is Robles’ son-in-law.
An autopsy determined Cosmea-Aspillaga “sustained stab wounds during a life-ending assault.” However, police said the medical examiner needs to conduct “further analysis” before formally confirming the cause of death.
