Mounties in Alberta have charged a person with aiding a suicide.

RCMP say a body was found last Friday inside a vehicle parked in front of the hospital in Hinton, about 300 kilometres west of Edmonton.

A person admitted to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries was charged this week with aiding suicide.

RCMP will not reveal the ages, genders or possible relationship of the dead person and the accused.

A publication ban prevents identifying the pair.

The accused has been remanded in custody and is to appear in Hinton court on June 5.
