Two men from Newfoundland were charged with murder after a third man, also from that province, was found dead in Edmonton early Saturday.

The body of a 35-year-old man was found in a house near 37th Avenue and 45th Street, said Staff Sgt. Bill Clark of the Edmonton Police Service.

Police wouldn't say how he died or release his name.

Officers had gone to the house after getting a call from RCMP in Fort McMurray, Alta., a news release said. The Mounties in that city asked Edmonton police to check on the victim's welfare after arresting and interviewing another man on a separate matter.

The dead man's name has not been released.

A neighbour said the man and his two roommates moved into the home three weeks ago and worked together building houses. The victim had moved to Alberta so he could earn enough money to build his parents a home in Newfoundland, the neighbour said.

His death was Edmonton's 46th homicide of 2011.

Paul Raymond Gill, 44, and William John Tubrett, 47, have both been charged with second-degree murder.

The hometowns of the victim and the two accused are not available, Clark says .
