Two women have been charged with first-degree murder and other charges in the death of Gerhard (George) Reimer-Wiebe.
The Manitoba RCMP says that 26-year-old Bobbi Lynn Hall and 24-year-old Chelsea O'Hanley, both of Winnipeg, were arrested on August 5 and August 6 respectively. Both women were charged with first-degree murder, forcible confinement, and indignity to a dead human body.
Reimer-Wiebe's body was discovered in Portage la Prairie on June 24. After identifying him police put out images of people of interest in the case and received over 250 tips. Shortly after they arrested and charged two men with first-degree murder, forcible confinement, and indignity to a dead human body. The RCMP says that all four people charged were the people in the released images, and they expect no other arrests to be made.
"It is my hope that the first-degree murder charges against these four individuals brings some closure to Gerhard’s young family, his relatives and friends" says Superintendent Michael Koppang, Officer in Charge of Major Crime Services for the Manitoba RCMP.
"To have four charges of first-degree murder laid in this investigation speaks to the professionalism and dedication of every single officer and civilian who worked on this file. I want to thank them for their tenacity and perseverance throughout this investigation."
