The New Brunswick RCMP says a 38-year-old Moncton man has been charged with second degree murder in the death of a woman Friday at a home on Fleet Street in Moncton.

Rejean Gautreau appeared in Moncton Provincial Court on Monday morning and was charged in connection with the death of a woman in her early thirties. Gautreau was arrested on Sunday, according to Cpl. Jullie Rogers-Marsh. He has been remanded in custody until his next court appearance on April 23 at 9:30 a.m.

There is a court ordered publication ban on the name of the victim to allow police time to provide notice to next of kin.

The investigation by the New Brunswick RCMP Major Crime Unit is continuing, Rogers-Marsh said.
