Edward Chomiak Found Guilty Of First And Second-Degree Murder


PEACE RIVER, Alta. — A northern Alberta man has been found guilty of killing his wife and her daughter.

A court in Peace River has found Edward Chomiak guilty of first-degree murder in the December 2010 death of Melody Perry, who was 45.

He was also found guilty of second-degree murder of Jerica Bouchard, who was 20.

Chomiak is to be sentenced Friday.

Court heard that he shot both of the women numerous times in their home near Fahler, 430 kilometres northwest of Edmonton.

During the trial a tape of a 911 call was played in which Perry tells a dispatcher that Chomiak is in the house with a gun and had shot her daughter. (CKYL)
