HINTON, Alta. - Mounties in Alberta have charged a woman with helping another woman commit suicide.

RCMP say a body was found last Friday inside a vehicle parked in front of the hospital in Hinton, about 300 kilometres west of Edmonton.

A 53-year-old woman who was admitted to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries was charged this week with aiding suicide.

Court documents show the dead person was also a woman, but her age was not disclosed.

A publication ban prevents identifying the pair.

The accused has been remanded in custody and is to appear in Hinton court on June 5.
