Wife charged with husband's murder

A local woman will appear in Richmond provincial court Thursday morning, facing a single count of second degree murder in connection with the stabbing death of her 38-year-old husband.

Pui Chun "Winnie" Poon has now been charged, and will make her first court appearance tomorrow.

Police were called to the couple's condo at 8700 Ackroyd Rd. following a 911 call involving a man who had been stabbed.

The incident appears to be a domestic dispute.

A third person, a female friend who was visiting, is not going to be charged.
