Husband of Winnipeg homicide victim wanted in her death

Police are asking for help tracking down a Winnipeg man wanted for manslaughter in connection with the death of his wife.

Julie Racette, 34, died April 11 after being rushed to hospital from a home in the 500 block of Ottawa Avenue.

Police say Racette’s death was initially believed to be medical in nature, but officers began investigating later that day when the medical examiner raised concerns about how she died.

Following an autopsy, police now say Racette was the victim of a homicide.

Police haven’t released details about what they believe led to her killing or said how exactly she died.

Her death brings the number homicides in Winnipeg this year to 13.

On Monday homicide investigators released photos of Racette’s husband, Wayne Leslie Melnychuk, 42, who is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in connection with her death.
