Convicted killer Christopher Alexander Falconer, who was on parole when Amber Kirwan disappeared seven months ago, has been charged with kidnapping and first-degree murder of the 19-year-old, say police in New Glasgow, N.S.
Kirwan vanished last October after a night out with friends. Falconer, 29, was granted parole a year ago after serving time in prison for the second-degree murder of the cab driver in 1998.
At a briefing this morning in New Glasgow, police said a woman was arrested Wednesday but released in the evening without charges. No other arrests are expected.
Remains found in wooded area
Falconer appeared in court briefly Thursday morning. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance on May 28.
