Arrest and conviction:
Belinda McKay's boyfriend confessed and has been sentenced. Details from http://www.winnipegsun.com/2014/08/19/it-was-crack--it-wasnt-me

"Lenny Keam says he was in the grip of a three-day crack binge when he stabbed his girlfriend Belinda McKay to death, left her young son in their apartment and stole her bank card to continue drinking at a bar.

'It was crack that got me into that situation that night; it wasn't me, it was a different guy,' Keam told a court filled with McKay's family members and friends Tuesday.
....

Keam, 30, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for the March 9, 2012 killing and was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 13 years"
