VANCOUVER - Homicide police in British Columbia are investigating two separate deaths, one related to a domestic incident and another to a fight involving weapons.

Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says police arrived at a home in Sechelt early Wednesday morning and found a 67-year-old woman dead.

It appears the woman met with foul play, and police arrested a 47-year-old man at the scene.

Pound says the two people knew each other, the attack appears to be domestic-related, and the suspect may be facing homicide-related charges.

Homicide investigators have also taken over a case in Maple Ridge in Metro Vancouver that left 29-year-old Louie Sparvier dead and a 23-year-old man with critical injuries.

Pound says the two men were in a fight on Tuesday morning, and both sustained injuries from an edged weapon and a firearm.
