Southern Alberta woman charged with murder in stabbing death of her partner

LETHBRIDGE, Alta. — A woman in southern Alberta has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of her partner last winter.

Lethbridge police say the two women were living together in an apartment and had been arguing.

Officers called to the building on Feb. 7 found 56-year-old Frances Candace Little Light dead.

They recovered a weapon a short distance from the apartment complex.

Jillian Wendy Across the Mountain, who is 54, was arrested on Monday as she was released from the Lethbridge Correctional Centre on unrelated matters.
