Saskatoon man charged with murder
A Saskatoon man appeared in provincial court Monday morning on a first-degree murder charge.
Tapio Lindholm, 66, was arrested Friday after a 27-year-old man died after being shot at a home on the 200 block of Taylor Street East on the city's east side.
Police said a man was arguing with a woman at a house when the woman's son intervened.
The 27-year-old, Danny Douglas Cook, was shot and rushed to hospital, where he died.
Police said a suspect fled the scene, but was caught a few minutes later in the west end of the city.
Lindholm appeared before a justice of the peace on Saturday.
He also faces a number of other charges, police spokeswoman Alyson Edwards said.
"Two charges of attempted murder in regards to two female victims who were present in the home at the time, possession of a restricted firearm and failure to provide a breath sample," she said. "There are also three breach of condition charges."
Those alleged breaches relate to previous matters, Edwards said.
Following a brief court appearance Monday morning, Lindholm was remanded into custody. He'll be back in court on April 21.
Outside court, Cook's girlfriend, Rochelle Sayer, said she was devastated by the loss.
"Still hasn't sunken in yet … I can't even believe what happened yet," she said. "I miss Danny so much, no one even knows what I'm going through."
It's Saskatoon's first homicide of the year, police said.
