MIRAMICHI -- A Moncton woman has been charged in connection with the murder of a Fredericton woman last year.

The RCMP responded to a dirt road in Upper Derby, N.B., on Oct. 27, 2018, after human remains were found.

The victim was identified as 31-year-old Candace Rose Winona Stevens and her death was ruled a homicide.

Wendy Gail Losier has been charged with accessory after the fact to murder and interfering with human remains in connection with Stevens’ death.

The 42-year-old woman appeared before a judge by way of tele-remand on Saturday and was remanded into custody.

On Monday, Judge Julian Dixon read the charges into the court record.

"Wendy Gail Losier, on or about the 26th day of October 2018, at Fredericton, New Brunswick, knowing that James Curtis had murdered Candace Stevens, did comfort or assist James Curtis for the purpose of enabling James Curtis to escape contrary to Section 240 of the Criminal Code of Canada," he said.

Losier is also accused of indecently interfering with Stevens' remains by transporting and disposing of them.

Fredericton police confirm James Curtis - the man they believe is responsible for Stevens' death - is deceased.

Losier is being held in custody and is due back in court on Nov. 12.

CTV News has confirmed that Losier was also charged in connection with a high-speed chase last November.

Police say shots were fired inside the Miramichi Walmart and two people fled the scene in a vehicle.

A high-speed police chase ended near Richibucto where the RCMP deployed a spike belt.

After the vehicle stopped, Mounties say they heard a shot fired inside the car.

The 26-year-old driver was injured and taken to hospital, where he later died as a result of his injuries.

Losier was a passenger in the vehicle.

Some supporters of Stevens were in the courtroom, and said they felt this arrest is the first step in getting justice.

For the last year, Stevens has been remembered as a "very kind soul" and a "wonderful colleague and friend."

The Indigenous single mother worked as an aesthetician at a Fredericton spa.

A red dress and sign have been placed in the area near where she was found -- to remember her.
