Husband charged with aiding wifes suicide

The United Press International provides a little more information for us on the Fonteece case. This article states that the autopsy report proves that: "there was no indication Yanisa Fonteece suffered from any sort of disease"

It is really hard to say anything clear about the case, but it may be that the couple was so distraught with the financial hardship that they were experiencing that Yonisa decided that she couldn't take it anymore. The sad reality is that many people experience extreme depression that leads them to believe that their is no more hope in life.

We will continue to publish new information.

This is the article in the United Press International:

Thunder Bay, Ontario, Feb. 10 (UPI)
A Canadian man is charged with helping his wife commit suicide in a northern Ontario city motel room, police said.

Peter Fonteece, 46, was to make a court appearance Tuesday in Thunder Bay, Ontario, with regard to bail on the assisted suicide and criminal negligence causing death charges, the National Post reported.

He called 911 from a Super 8 Motel room in the city at the head of Lake Superior early Friday morning about his 38-year-old wife Yanisa, police said. Paramedics found her in bed and didn't attempt resuscitation as they said she had been dead for some time, an emergency official said.

Police said the couple were from Waterloo in southern Ontario and were bound for British Columbia after they both lost their jobs and fell on hard financial times.

There was no immediate indication Yanisa Fonteece suffered from any sort of disease, the report said. An autopsy was conducted Saturday in Toronto but other tests, including toxicology, could takes weeks, police said.
