Inukjuak boy, 16, charged with murder in death of woman

Charges follow SQ investigation


A 16-year-old boy from Inukjuak appeared in court in Amos March 27 to face a charge of murder in connection with the death of an Inukjuak woman, 41.

The Sûreté du Québec provincial police force and the Direction des Services Judiciares du Nord-du-Québec did not want to provide more information about the exact nature of charges that the teenager, a minor, faces.

By law, the name of the accused may not be published.

But his arrest came after investigators from the SQ travelled to the Hudson Bay community to investigate the death of the woman, which occurred March 25 or March 26.

Responding a call shortly before 1 a.m. on March 26, members of the Kativik Regional Police Force in Inukjuak found the body of the woman in an Inukjuak residence, said Sgt. Marie-Josée Ouellet, spokesperson for the SQ.
