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.

'The Spy Who Dumped Me' trailer is out
That film's title, of course, comes from Ian Fleming's novel The Spy Who Loved Me , the tenth book in the series, though the plot was different.

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.
