The Christ the King school community in Leduc still reeling a day after one of its students died following a stabbing incident and another was charged with first-degree murder.
“It’s all pretty fresh at this point, but everyone rallying around each other, wrapping around each other in support and in prayer,” said Charlie Bouchard, superintendent of the St. Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic School Division.
RCMP have charged 19-year-old Dylan Thomas Pountney with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of Jennifer Winkler, 17, a student in Grade 11. Both attended Christ the King school. They knew each other and they were in the same classroom when the incident occurred.
