A 38-year-old man faces a first-degree murder charge after a stabbing in west Edmonton this past weekend.

In a news release Wednesday, Edmonton police said an autopsy conducted on Tuesday determined that Sviatoslav Oliynichenko, 38, died of a stab wound and detectives determined the manner of death to be homicide.

The charge comes after officers responded to a call of a man needing medical attention at a residence in the area of 83 Avenue and 159 Street at about 8:54 p.m. on Saturday.

Oliynichenko was declared dead at the scene despite the first-aid efforts of police and paramedics.

Victor Shygl, 38, has been charged with first-degree murder. Police said the two men knew each other, but didn’t release any further information.
