A man faces a murder charge after the sudden death of a 37-year-old man in Red Deer.

The afternoon of Nov. 14, RCMP were called to 58 Avenue and 69 Street in Red Deer to assist emergency responders in the death of Dennis Anderson Edwards.

Mounties say further investigation led them to believe his death was suspicious, and the case was turned over to the RCMP Major Crimes Unit. An autopsy was completed by the Calgary Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

On Tuesday, 29-year-old Jordan David Ruff of Drayton Valley was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
