The RCMP and the BC Coroners service who are investigating the case says a 27-year-old, Shane Sutherland has been charged with second-degree murder after he was arrested at the scene of the tragic incident.

Sutherland who is currently in custody will be arraigned on a murder charge in court today for a bail hearing.

Police initially called the death suspicious and said the two were known to each other, but have released few other details.

Amanda Black’s Gofundme account has gathered about $5,735 out of a $15,000 donation goal.

Tragedy has struck the Black family, owners of Gabriola’s WHEELBARREL NURSERY for the past 18 years. Two days ago, Amanda Black, the beloved 22-year-old granddaughter of Linda and Butch and daughter of new Gabriola resident Rick Black, was a victim of domestic violence. She was brutally taken from this world and her baby boy Jasper has been left behind in Fort St John without any parents to care for him.

We want to help the Black family gain some closure for this huge loss. Our goal is to raise enough money to enable the family to pay legal, funeral and travel expenses. With time off work, these mounting expenses will be too much of a burden to handle as the family grieves the loss of beautiful Amanda.
