Charges Laid in December 2016 Homicide

Crown Counsel has approved charges in Vancouver’s 11th homicide of 2016. Seventy-seven-year-old Gordon Humeny has been charged with second-degree murder. He is scheduled to make a court appearance today.

On December 6th, 2016, police were called to a home near West 13th Avenue and MacDonald Street, where officers discovered a woman’s body. Detectives from VPD’s Homicide Unit took over the investigation and charges were approved earlier this week.

The victim has been identified as 71-year-old Donna Humeny.

This incident is now before the courts, so we are unable to provide additional details about the investigation.
