Former Canadian Football League player Josh Boden is accused of murder

VANCOUVER — A former wide receiver with the Canadian Football
League’s B.C. Lions has been charged with second-degree murder
more than nine years after a woman’s death.

The body of 33-year-old Kimberly Hallgarth was found in a
Burnaby home with what police said were suspicious injuries in
May 2009.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team announced the charge
today against Joshua Boden, who was expected to appear in
court.

Insp. Dave Chauhan, the acting officer in charge of the
homicide team, says work done by the original investigators and
a review by its cold-case team led to the approval of charges
by the Crown.

A statement from Hallgarth’s family says she was a bubbly and
caring person who deeply loved being a mother to her daughter
and they’ve waited for information on her death for nearly 10
years.

Boden played for the Lions in 2007.
