Charged with manslaughter

A Salmon Arm man has been arrested and charged with manslaughter nearly one year after a woman was found dead in Armstrong.

Logan Scott, 31, was arrested on August 27 after an exhaustive investigation into the death of 27-year-old Jillian McKinty.

The mother of two was found deceased in her home on Wolfenden Terrace on Nov. 27, 2013. 

Authorities at the time had said the circumstances surrounding her death were suspicious in nature.

Scott has been remanded into custody and will appear in Vernon Provincial Court today (Friday).

He has also been charged with Theft Under $5,000.
