Charges upgraded for man accused of killing Tess Richey

Jade Belcourt 18 died after being hit by a truck at an Edmonton home near 85 Avenue and 190 Street

The Toronto man accused in the death of 22-year-old Tess Richey is now facing an upgraded charge of first-degree murder.

She was found by her mother, North Bay resident Christine Hermeston, and a friend a few days later, on November 29, 2017, at 3:30 p.m., outside a building undergoing construction.

A man accused of killing a young woman in Toronto's gay village a year ago has had his charge upgraded to first-degree murder, police said on Wednesday. Police said she was out at a bar and had been seen interacting with a young man. A post-mortem exam revealed she died from "neck compression".

Self-employed landscaper Bruce McArthur, 66, has since been charged with six counts of first-degree murder in the deaths and disappearances of several men, most with ties to the gay village.

Previously, police said they believe Richey's death was a crime of opportunity and that the suspect was on their radar early on in the investigation.

Sparks was initially charged with second-degree murder but the charges were upgraded to a capital felony, documents saying the "killing was perpetrated from or with a premeditated design".

Schlatter will appear in court Thursday morning.
