UPDATE: Kamloops police investigate homicide after woman killed in apartment

KAMLOOPS - RCMP officers have a man in custody after finding a dead woman in an apartment on the North Shore's Cherry Avenue around 2 p.m. today, Dec. 30. 

But after reporting that a suspect was "arrested for murder," RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Cheryl Bush now says he has "been taken into custody in relation to the investigation." 

Investigators believe the 41-year-old male had an association with the victim and he is "known to police."

The investigation, in its early stages, remains ongoing. 

Emergency services crews were called to that area at that time for a report of a stabbing. Police have not confirmed the cause of death in the homicide investigation.
