Boyfriend charged with 2nd-degree murder in Ontario woman’s death

Durham Regional Police say they charged the boyfriend of a woman who died following a domestic violence call in Ajax last weekend.

On Saturday at around 11:05 p.m., officers found 45-year-old Jennifer Polak suffering from obvious signs of trauma at a home on Hillman Drive, south of Bayly Street East and Shoal Point Road.

“What seemed to be an unknown trouble incident last night developed quickly into a devastating loss of life,” Acting Duty Insp. Rob Williamson told reporters the following morning.

Despite life-saving measures, police said she was pronounced dead at the scene.
