Second-degree murder charges have been laid following the death of a child in Edmonton on Monday.
David Michael Moss, 34, was set to make his first court appearance in Edmonton on Wednesday morning, following a stabbing on May 18 that led to the death of seven-year-old Bella Rose Desrosiers.
Moss had no prior criminal convictions, according to court documents.
On Monday evening, police were called to the home at 25 Avenue NW and 43 Street NW for a report of a stabbing. When they arrived, they found a girl under 10 with life-threatening injuries. Despite efforts from emergency crews, police said the girl succumbed to her injuries on scene.
Neighbours told Global News Bella was part of the community and put on a Stollery lemonade sale each summer.
The Desrosiers family was a family of three; Melissa, Bella, and another young daughter. The children’s father died last summer, according to neighbours.
