Man charged in connection to Angila Wilson death

The woman killed last week in Clearwater has ties to Hope

Police discovered the body of Angila Wilson in this small house on Stegg Road in Clearwater last Monday

A man in his early 40s has been charged with first-degree murder after a woman with ties to Hope was found dead inside her Clearwater home.

Iain Drummond Scott was taken into custody last Monday after a seven-hour standoff with police. He is believed to be the estranged common-law spouse of the victim.

On April 21 at 10 a.m., Clearwater RCMP responded to a call for assistance at a residence on Stegg Road in Clearwater. Officers found the body of Angila Wilson inside the home and her three children missing. Wilson, a nurse at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital in Clearwater, attended Hope Secondary School in the late 1990s and still has family living in the community.

Significant regional RCMP resources were immediately deployed to support the members of Clearwater detachment in their response to the homicide scene and their active pursuit of the missing children and suspect. This support included the Emergency Response Team, Major Crime Unit, Forensic Identification Services, Police Dog Services, and an RCMP Air Services helicopter.

The three missing children, reportedly aged six, four and two, were located at the same home where Scott was later arrested. They were safely removed by RCMP Emergency Response Team members. The children were not physically harmed during the incident.

Scott is expected to appear back in court  on June 2 in Kamloops.

Online fundraising campaigns have been started at http://www.gofundme.com/8k1hts and http://www.gofundme.com/8r0x68 to support Wilson’s kids.
