A 28-year-old man is facing first-degree murder charges in the death of a woman in Prince Albert earlier this year.

John Thomas Peter Shaoulle from Wollaston Lake made his first court appearance Wednesday morning.

On April 8, police found the body of 33-year-old Margaret Rose Sewap in the unit block of 17th Street East.

Shaoulle was arrested while he was in remand on unrelated charges. He is set to return to court Nov. 21.
