HALIFAX — Police have charged a 27-year-old Halifax man with second-degree murder in the death of a police officer.

The arrest came about an hour after the body of Catherine Campbell was discovered in a wooded area near an overpass that leads to the Macdonald Bridge connecting Halifax and Dartmouth.

Campbell was reported missing on Monday when she didn’t show up for work at the Truro Police Service.

Supt. Jim Perrin of Halifax Regional Police said Campbell was last seen at a bar in downtown Halifax early Friday morning.
