Officers arrived to find a woman dead and a man suffering from non-life threatening injuries. He remains in hospital.

Global News spoke with the building’s owner, Craig Stout, who said the victims involved are a senior couple that have been living in the apartment for at least two decades. He estimates they are in their 70’s.

Edmonton police said an autopsy will be scheduled early next week to determine the cause of death of the female.
