RCMP : Arrest made in historical Manitoba homicide

A man serving a life sentence for slaying and dismembering his wife in B.C. has now been charged with killing a Winnipeg woman who went missing in October 2006.

Traigo Ehkid Andretti, 38, was arrested by Winnipeg police on May 30 in British Columbia and has been moved to Manitoba where he faces a second-degree murder charge in the death of Myrna Letandre, 36.

The woman’s remains were found last spring buried in the foundation of a rooming house on Lorne Avenue in Winnipeg’s Point Douglas neighbourhood.

Police are staying tight lipped on the link between the two cases but do say Letandre and Andretti were in a relationship in Winnipeg before he moved west with McPherson. It’s believed the three were living together inside the rooming house where Letandre’s remains were found. Investigators admit Andretti was questioned shortly after Letandre went missing but no charges were laid.

Andretti – who also goes by the name Dylan Grubb – is being transported back to Winnipeg. Police won’t say if he’s being investigated in connection to any other murders.

Letandre’s case is the first of 28 highlighted under the task force Project Devote to be solved. It was set up by Manitoba RCMP and Winnipeg Police in 2012 to try and crack historical cases of missing and murdered people in Manitoba, focusing mostly on women who lived an “at risk lifestyle.”
