A dangerous sex offender who fled from a Victoria halfway house in April has been charged with first degree murder in the death of a woman in Princeton, B.C.
Roger Badour, 63, was released on parole in Victoria in January, prompting an unusual public warning by Victoria police.
Badour was pulled over for a traffic offence in Penticton on Nov. 9, and arrested on a Canada-wide warrant for violating his parole.
The officer found three firearms in his vehicle, two loaded. An RCMP investigation then linked Badour to the murder of a 56-year-old Gisele Duckham in Princeton on Nov. 8. Police say she died of gunshot wounds.
Badour appeared in court Wednesday and remains in custody in the Lower Mainland.
