Police were called to the 300 block of Templeview Drive N.E. last Thursday around 7:15 p.m. after reports of gunshots. They arrived to find an unconscious woman in medical distress. She later died from her injuries.

The victim was identified as Jamie Lynn Scheible.

Police have now issued a warrant for second-degree murder for 37-year-old Gerald Russell Frommelt.

He is described as six feet two inches tall, weighing 250 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

Police say they believe the victim and accused were recently in a relationship.

“We believe this to be a domestically motivated homicide,” said Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta with the Calgary Police Service homicide unit.

“This is a tragic death and we are asking the public to help us locate Frommelt to help bring justice to Jamie’s family.”

Last week, Scheible’s family issued a statement through Calgary police saying she was a beloved friend, mother, daughter, granddaughter and sister.

“We are devastated by the loss of our sweet daughter Jamie. She was the most amazing, loving and kind person who was always helping others. She was beautiful, free-spirited, quirky and funny, and always brought a smile to our faces,” read the family’s statement. “We adore her and are overwhelmed with grief.”

Several friends of Scheible told Postmedia she was a happy and outgoing woman who loved her daughter and saw the best in everyone.

A GoFundMe has been started on behalf of Scheible’s family. The campaign says all funds will go toward assisting the family with anything they need, including funeral costs and caring for Scheible’s daughter.

CPS confirmed Frommelt is known to police but would not comment on any past interactions they had with him. According to court documents, he’s had several run-ins with police over the past 13 years.

Frommelt was one of 35 people arrested in a police sting operation involving Hells Angels associates in Winnipeg, in 2009. He was sentenced the following year to six and a half years in jail after pleading guilty to trafficking cocaine, participating in a criminal organization and conspiracy to launder proceeds of crime.

More recently, Frommelt was sentenced in late March 2019 to six months in jail for possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. He was also sentenced to 30 days and fined $300 for failure to comply with conditions and failure to hold a valid licence a few weeks later.

Frommelt was given six months in jail in September 2021 for being unlawfully in a dwelling house, and one month for failing to comply with a release order. On Oct. 8, 2021, he was given 45 days in prison for two counts of failure to comply with release conditions.

Anyone with information on Frommelt’s whereabouts is asked to contact Calgary police at 403-266-1234, or to submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers.
