Winnipeg woman killed man in act of self-defence and won’t be charged

Winnipeg police say the woman’s actions were reasonable under the circumstances.

The Forks, Winnipeg

A man was killed at The Forks parkade in Winnipeg earlier this year.

Charges will not be laid against a 23-year-old woman who police say was defending herself when a man was killed at The Forks parkade in Winnipeg earlier this year.

Officers were called about an incident at the parkade just after 10 p.m. on May 5.

Police found the injured man, later identified as Kyle James Craik, 27. He was rushed to hospital and pronounced dead.

Police said in a news release on Monday that the investigation led to the arrest of a 23-year-old woman, but further investigation revealed she had been confronted by Craik, whom she didn’t know.

An altercation followed, which resulted in Craik’s death after the woman defended herself.

After review by a senior Crown attorney and Manitoba Justice, they determined that her actions were reasonable under the circumstances, police said in the news release.
