A command post of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal is located on rue Robert-Savage, in Stukely-Sud.
A man was arrested in connection with the x27;investigation into the suspicious death of a woman in Stukely-Sud, which occurred in mid-June. Jean-Philippe Coutu has been formally charged with the second degree murder of Jocelyne Lessard.
The 41-year-old man from Waterloo is also charged with uttering death threats or causing bodily harm to a person associated with the justice system, and breaking and entering a house and of uttering death threats there.
Jean-Philippe Coutu appeared at the Granby courthouse on Thursday in connection with the murder charge. The other charges were filed on June 14.
The Bureau of Independent Investigations (BEI) had been dispatched to the scene to shed light on the the circumstances of the intervention initially carried out by the Sûreté du Québec. The police investigation had been entrusted to the Service de police de Montréal (SPVM).
Recall that the police, who were looking for a man who was making incoherent and threatening remarks, had found him in a woman's home on June 12. Once arrested, the suspect reportedly provided police with information that led to the location of the victim, a 67-year-old woman.
The accused is currently in custody. He will return to court next Monday for further proceedings.
