A 39-year-old Saskatchewan man accused of stabbing someone in a hospital is facing an elevated charge of second-degree murder.
Police were called to Saskatoon’s Royal University Hospital in June after a 55-year-old man was stabbed.
The suspect was initially charged with attempted murder, but police say the charge was upgraded after the man recently succumbed to his injuries in hospital.
Police did not identify the two men in the case.
They say the accused is in custody and scheduled to appear in court today.
It’s the seventh homicide in Saskatoon so far this year.
