Man's police believe he killed a woman from Burnaby earlier this month and has been accused of second-degree murder.
Burnaby's resident, Nicole Hasselmann, 34, was injured and lying next to a vehicle that had crashed into the 8000 block of the Barnet highway on November 16. She and the driver of the vehicle were transferred to the hospital where she later died of injuries.
The driver survived his wounds.
Initially, the researchers thought that their injuries had been caused by the accident, but then they determined that it was a dirty game. Officers with the Integrated Homicide Research team were summoned to take charge of the investigation.
Today (Friday), the police announced that Jan Poepl had been arrested for 31 years. Poepl has been accused of second-degree murder in connection with the death of Hasselmann, according to a press release from IHIT.
Hasselmann, who also went to Nicole Porciello, worked as a student assistant at the Vancouver Templeton High School.
The police did not say if the accused is the same person who was driving the vehicle on the night of November 16.
