An Elkford woman will stand trial for first degree murder in the death of her common law husband.

Dawn Michelle Taylor, 27 was initially charged with the second degree murder of 35 year old Timothy “T.C” Wright of Elkford.

However, the charge was changed to first degree murder because Crown believes it has evidence which will show that Taylor acted with planning and deliberation in Wright’s death.

Wright was found dead in Elkford home on Sept 3, 1995.

His throat had been cut and he had been stabbed repeatedly, police said.

As the preliminary hearing wrapped up in Cranbrook Monday, family and friends of the deceased let out a quiet cheer as Judge Don Carlgren ruled there was sufficient evidence to bring the first degree murder case to trial.
