A 27-year-old man has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder after two people were found shot to death in a car in Edmonton's southwest Windermere neighbourhood.

CBC sources have confirmed Edmonton police charged Phillip Vanderwell last week.

The bodies of Daniel Fullerton and Dianna Wilk, both 28-years-old, were discovered in a car parked near 173rd Street and 11th Avenue on Oct. 30. Autopsies confirmed they both died from gunshot wounds. 

It's unclear why Edmonton police did not formally announce the arrest.
