A male youth has been charged with second degree murder in relation to the homicide of Chelsie Probert.
At approximately 10 p.m. on June 6, 2017 Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of a female in medical distress on a pathway in the 0-100 block of Albro Lake Road. Officers located 18-year-old Chelsie Probert who required immediate medical assistance. EHS transported her to hospital where she later passed away from her injuries. The Medical Examiner ruled Chelsie’s death a homicide.
Yesterday morning, investigators in the Homicide Unit of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division arrested a 16-year-old male youth at a Dartmouth residence. The youth was held overnight and is scheduled to appear in Halifax Youth Court today to face a charge of second degree murder.
