Police originally responded to the two-storey apartment in East Edmonton around 1:30 pm Wednesday after reports that a 28-year-old woman was attacked and confined over the course of several days.
When accused, they found an injured woman and promptly asked Neijo for two counts of assault that would harm body, intimidation, utter threats and unlawful confinement.

The woman and the men were known to each other, police said.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.
