Chilliwack – A Chilliwack man has been arrested and charged with second degree murder in connection with the homicide of Christine Denham.

On February 26, Chilliwack RCMP responded to a residence in the 9400-block of Victor Street and found 42-year-old Christine Denham inside the home with a gunshot wound.  She was taken to hospital and died on March 1.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) took conduct of the file and determined early on that this was not a random act.
