Officers responded immediately, and found the 69-year-old man, and determined his death to be a homicide.

The female was in the residence when officers arrived, and was arrested for the homicide and remained in police custody. 

The deceased and the female were known to each other.

Dueck will appear in Winnipeg court Tuesday.
