Second-degree murder charges have been approved by BC Prosecution Service against 23-year-old Nicholas Dwayne Wallace of Surrey in relation to the death of Elizabeth Poulin.

Vancouver Police received a 9-1-1 call at around 8 a.m. on November 24, after a relative discovered Ms. Poulin deceased in her apartment on Kingsway near Kerr Street. Investigators arrested the suspect two days later in Surrey and he was charged this morning. Wallace remains in custody.

This investigation is now before the courts and there is no additional information to share at this time.
