Edmonton - While confirming the identity of the woman they were giving a jaywalking ticket to, police discovered a warrant for her arrest for allegedly kidnapping a 16-year-old girl.
According to the Edmonton Police Service, on Wednesday officers observed a woman jaywalking in downtown Edmonton. They stopped her and in the process of ascertaining her identity, discovered there were warrants out for her arrest.
Lisa Ann McKay, 32, faces three counts of robbery and one count each of assault with a weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, kidnapping, uttering threats and fraud.
According to Leila Daoud, spokeswoman for the Edmonton police, McKay is alleged to have gone up to a 16-year-old girl on Tuesday and threatened her with a knife. It is then alleged she forced to teen to withdraw money from several ATM machines. Acting Det. Mike Furman said, "This was a serious incident that was very traumatic for the victim."
This was not McKay's first brush with the law. In 2006, she stabbed realtor, William Maloney, 63, to death in his St. Albert, Alberta home.
Both McKay and Maloney were addicted to cocaine and Maloney had an eight year relationship with the sex worker. On Feb. 9, 2006, Maloney had invited McKay to his home. Both consumed cocaine and an argument developed. McKay picked up a knife and stabbed the realtor five times. She then fled the home taking credit cards and other property.
McKay eventually turned herself in to the RCMP and was charged with second-degree murder. In May 2006, she pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to six years and seven months in prison.
She was paroled more than once but had her parole revoked for breaching conditions of her releases and failing drug and alcohol tests. McKay ended up serving the total sentence imposed upon her and gained her freedom in November 2012.
CBC News reports that after being released, McKay was convicted of assault causing bodily harm in March 2013, and was sentenced to 120 days in jail.
