Regina man facing murder charges in Alberta

A Regina man is facing second-degree murder charges after remains of a woman were found north of Edmonton last year.

Emergency crews in the community of Boyle responded to a mobile home fire on December 18. Inside that home was the body of 41 year old Melissa Lyne.

Alberta RCMP say 55-year-old Mario Bernier has been charged with second-degree murder, arson and indignity to human remains.

Bernier has been remanded into custody after a hearing and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday in Fort Saskatchewan.
