- Bloody metal bar found in south Ottawa, police seek help
That was one day after she had hernia surgery and it was also the day of her 17th wedding anniversary.
Gurpreet Ronald, a 34-year-old married mother of two, has already been charged with first-degree murder after Gill was stabbed to death.
Bloody metal bar became new lead
There was a new lead in the Gill homicide investigation on Friday after a bloodstained metal bar was found in a wooded area on the west side of Cedarview Road, about 300 metres north of Cambrian Road.
Police believe this bar was used to strike Gill before she was stabbed, sources said.
None of these allegations have been proven in court.
Sources have also told CBC News Ronald and Gill’s husband were close and they were both OC Transpo bus drivers. Ronald also lives on Towhee Place, one street over from the Gill family home.
Ronald's next court appearance is scheduled, via video, for Wednesday.
