Emergency crews were called to a fire at a home in Peel, just north of Hartland, at about 4:45 a.m. Monday morning. The home was completely engulfed in flames when Hartland firefighters arrived.

The body of 52-year-old Phyllis Roy was discovered inside the burned home,  according to a statement from New Brunswick RCMP.

The name of the accused and the charges will be made public in court.

The investigation is continuing.
