A charge of second-degree murder has been laid against a Prince Albert man, Todd Daniel McKeaveney, in the death of Monica Burns.

The RCMP don't believe McKeaveney and Burns knew one another. The 28-year-old woman was found dead on Jan. 17 on a snowmobile trail northwest of Prince Albert.

McKeaveney will make his first court appearance on Friday in Prince Albert Provincial Court. The 38-year-old was arrested on Wednesday, the same day the RCMP displayed some black rugs found near Burns' body.

"Monica was loved dearly by her friends and family, who will miss her greatly," the RCMP stated in a news release. Police also described how supportive and cooperative Burns' family has been through the investigation.
