Charges laid following death of Kamloops woman

KAMLOOPS - A man has been charged with manslaughter after allegedly killing a former Kamloops woman walking on a sidewalk in Calgary earlier this week.

Calgary city police were called to the 4200 block of Macleod Trail on Monday around 1:50 p.m. after reports of a serious collision.

Former Kamloops woman, 33-year-old Lacey Yvonne Manion, was found by emergency crews pinned under a black 2013 Chevrolet Camaro. Manion was pronounced dead on the scene, and an autopsy revealed her death was the result of blunt-force trauma, according to Calgary City Police.

The investigation is ongoing, however police believe the victim was driving with the accused prior to the accident and in some kind of relationship with him since February. Police believe Manion exited the vehicle and moments later was hit on the sidewalk.

Kristoffer Del Campo has been charged with manslaughter in relation to this incident.
