A Langford man has been charged with second degree murder after an incident in a home along the 1200-block of McLeod Place on Friday.

West Shore RCMP has arrested 56-year-old Ken Weber after an unresponsive 55-year-old woman was found at a residence by frontline officers just before 4 p.m. on Nov. 6.

The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) is leading the investigation to gather evidence with help from West Shore RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identifications Services (IFIS) and the B.C. Coroners Service.

“Investigators believe this was an isolated incident,” said Const. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP media relations officer. “This is not related to any other ongoing investigations taking place on Vancouver Island and there are no ongoing public safety concerns.”

Police say they will not discuss any further details as the matter is before a court and the investigation enters its early stages.

Weber is expected to make his next court appearance on Nov. 19.
