Thompson RCMP have laid charges following a fire and alleged assault in Thicket Portage late last week.
Officers received a call early in the evening on March 2nd reporting an assault in the community. While on their way to the scene, officers were told there was a fire at the residence they were heading to.
When they arrived on scene, local firefighters located one female inside the residence and two males outside with injuries. The 21-year-old female was transported to the local nursing station, where she succumbed to her injuries.
23-year-old Travis Munroe, who lived in the home, has been arrested and charged with manslaughter, arson with disregard for human life, assault causing bodily harm and two counts of assault. Munroe and the deceased woman were in a relationship.
The fire is considered suspicious, and is currently being investigated by the Office of the Fire Commissioner, RCMP Major Crime Services and RCMP Forensic Identification Services.
