Two people: a 29 year-old male and a 25 year-old female, attended Provincial Court this morning, facing accessory-after-the-fact to murder charges in connection with the January 16th homicide of Amber Dawn WOOD. Two other suspects are in police custody as well, with more details to be released as soon as possible.
The victim, 38 year-old Amber Dawn WOOD, was inside a residence in the 700 block of Athol Street on the morning of Saturday, January 16, 2021. When police and EMS were dispatched at 8:10 a.m., they responded to that location for a report of a person injured in a shooting. WOOD was taken to hospital by EMS but was pronounced deceased a short time later. Investigation into this case by police and the Saskatchewan Coroners Service deemed the event to be a homicide. In the past two days, continued investigation by the Regina Police Service Major Crimes Unit, assisted by many other police resources, resulted in a total of four arrests. A male and female were arrested on January 17th and 18th with two males being arrested the night of the 18th. At this time, the male and female are facing charges. Investigation is continuing with respect to the 3rd and 4th suspects.
Twenty-nine year-old Justin Julien ENGLOT and 25 year-old Jayden Marie SANFORD, both of Regina, are charged with:
- Accessory After the Fact to Murder [240 CC]; and
- Possession of Property Obtained by Crime over $5,000 [355(a) CC].
Both SANFORD and ENGLOT made their first court appearance on these charges in Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. (today) Tuesday, January 19, 2021.
