A Kelowna woman charged with the 2020 murder of Matthew Cholette has been released on bail.

Following a noise complaint for a domestic dispute, Cholette was found on Dec. 13, 2020 in a pool of blood outside of a townhouse complex at Black Mountain. A 32-year-old woman was arrested at the scene and released shortly after, though the identity of that woman is unknown.

Marlena Isnardy was arrested almost two years after the 27-year-old Cholette was found dead. Charges of second-degree murder were approved against Isnardy at her arrest on Feb. 11, 2022.

Isnardy was granted bail on April 28. Her next appearance is on May 3.
