HALIFAX—A man and woman are facing charges in connection to the death of a Halifax man whose body was found inside his south-end home Sunday.

Police say a 51-year-old Halifax man faces a charge of second-degree murder in the death of 65-year-old David William Rose.

A 29-year-old woman, also from Halifax, faces charges of robbery and being an accessory after the fact to murder.

The two suspects were arrested Tuesday night and questioned Wednesday by police.

Officers were called to Rose’s home on South Street late Sunday after his body was discovered.

An autopsy has been conducted, but police have not released the cause of death.
