An 80-year-old woman who was sexually assaulted in a downtown Edmonton seniors home two months ago has died.
The woman was assaulted inside her ground-level suite around 3:45 a.m. on May 8 at the Edmonton Chinese Seniors' Lodge. A man was arrested and charged in the case.
Alberta Justice spokesman David Dear said the case is being reviewed to see if it should be classified as a homicide.
"All we can confirm at this time is that the Crown is reviewing the medical examiner's results in the case to determine whether a homicide charge is warranted," he said.
A 45-year-old man is facing charges of aggravated sexual assault and break and enter in the attack
