The woman accused in a fatal stabbing in Vancouver’s Yaletown neighbourhood couldn’t have committed the crime of which she’s accused, her boyfriend says.
The Vancouver Police Department said July 19 that Lindsay Scott, 34, is facing charges of second-degree murder and assault in the death of Justin Mohrman.
The 29-year-old man was walking near Smithe and Homer streets around 8:30 a.m. July 11 when he was stabbed. 911 was called and he was taken to hospital.
“Investigators have found no evidence to suggest the victim and accused knew each other,” says Sgt. Steve Addison. “We believe they were strangers.”
Boyfriend Robert Lee told Glacier Media outside Vancouver provincial court Scott is innocent.
“There’s no way this lady could do something like that,” he said. “I’ve lived with her for eight months. She’s a beautiful sweetheart. She’s an angel.”
Police arrested Scott shortly after the incident at Main and Hastings. She remains in custody at Alouette Correctional Centre for Women in Maple Ridge.
Scott made a brief video appearance before Judge Patricia Bond on Aug. 15.
Defence lawyer John Turner told Bond Scott has yet to have a bail hearing. He and Crown prosecutor Brendan McCabe agreed for the case to be adjourned to Aug. 23.
