A man who was accused of raping his own pregnant wife has died at the age of 84, the Edmonton Police Service confirmed Tuesday.
Police say the man was found dead at his home in Edmonton Tuesday morning.
He was arrested in May 2018 after police allege he raped his wife, who was an employee of his company.
His wife’s family said he was on the payroll of a local oil company.
Police are continuing their investigation into whether the woman was a victim of domestic violence.
A coroner’s report was completed on the death of Kevin Risz, the EPS said.
He died Tuesday.
He is survived by his wife and two children.
