A 42-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of a woman whose body was found this week in south Edmonton.

Charissa Kozakewich, 39, was found dead just after 1 a.m. Thursday in a home at 73rd Street and 22nd Avenue.

Police were directed there after a man showed up at the Sherwood Park RCMP detachment to make a report about an injured woman.

Police say the slaying was not random. The man accused in the death was known to her.

The accused is scheduled make his first appearance in court on Wednesday.
