>Woman accused of abducting daughter, moving to Calgary

ST. CATHARINES, Ont. -- A 39-year-old woman who formerly lived in St. Catharines was arrested for allegedly abducting her daughter and moving to Calgary, Alberta, Niagara Regional Police reported.

The woman, whose name was not released to protect the identity of her 5-year-old daughter, was arrested after the child's 45-year-old father told police in December his estranged common-law wife might have abducted his child and taken her out of the province.

A three-month police investigation led to Thursday's arrest of the woman by the Calgary Police Service. Niagara detectives went to Calgary to retrieve her for prosecution.

Police said the woman moved to Calgary in December. Police confirmed she was the custodial parent but said the father has visitation rights that were being denied.

An arrest warrant for the woman was issued after police tried numerous times to convince the mother to voluntarily return with her daughter to Ontario.

NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. -- One Niagara Falls, Ont., man is in custody and one man is still being sought in connection with last week's homicide involving a 33-year-old man at a party on Malibu Drive, Niagara Regional Police reported Monday.

Shilo Beals, no age listed, of Niagara Falls, turned himself in to major crime detectives and now faces charges including a weapons count, firearm possession, uttering death threats and pointing a firearm. Beals remained in custody pending a bail hearing today. A Canada-wide arrest warrant for murder was issued for 25-year-old Lloyd Orman, who is also known as "Butchie," of Niagara Falls, who formerly lived in North Preston, Nova Scotia.

Simmons was shot multiple times and died the next day in Hamilton General Hospital.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Orman is asked to contact Niagara Regional Police at (905) 688-4111, Ext. 2200.
