From the comments:
A 61-year-old Winnipeg store owner has been arrested and charged in the death of 29-year-old Geraldine Beardy.
Police allege Beardy was confronted by the man, whose name has not been released by police, after she was caught trying to steal a can of luncheon meat worth $1.49 at a Sherbrook Street convenience store in Winnipeg on Sept. 13. She was assaulted before she fled to a nearby residence, police said.
On another note, why was she stealing, everyone is entitled to welfare, food banks exist for these situations. Don't steal & you won't get clobbered.
