Police have charged a 16-year-old male with murder in the weekend slaying of a woman in an Albert Park home.

On Saturday, a neighbour approached police to check on the welfare of a woman in the 2800 block of 14 Ave. S.W.

Inside they found the body of a 49-year-old woman, whose death was deemed suspicious.

A day after her body was discovered, police arrested and charged the 16-year-old they said is known to the victim with second-degree murder.

Police aren't releasing the name of the victim to ensure the identity of the youth, who can't be named, isn't compromised.

The autopsy on the woman continues and isn't expected to be completed until late Monday.

The woman's death marks Calgary's 21st homicide of 2014.
