Police say a suspect, arrested in connection with the slaying of Sheldon Wolf, has been charged with first-degree murder.
Faiyah (Victor) Briama, 23, of Calgary, has been formally charged. Briama was arrested Friday afternoon in Calgary following a police investigation.
Officials say he is responsible for the death of Sheldon Wolf, a man who was visiting the city from Carrot River, Sask. earlier this week.
Police began a missing person investigation on Monday when Wolf left the hotel he was staying at with his family members and failed to return.
A day later, his body was found in a rural area north of the city of Airdrie.
Officials have not released Wolf’s cause of death but say he was the victim of a homicide.
Briama is scheduled to appear in Calgary provincial court on Feb. 10.
