A 43-year-old Kitchener man has been charged with murder in connection with the city’s second homicide of 2017.

The charge relates to the death of a 37-year-old Kitchener man at a home on Mooregate Crescent.

Police say the two men knew each other prior to Sunday afternoon, when the 43-year-old man allegedly stabbed the 37-year-old man to death during a fight which spilled out of the home.

One neighbour, Norma Smith, told CTV News she had seen a man “bloody and motionless” on the ground.

Court documents identify the victim as Shamsul Alamshah, and his alleged killer as Mohamed Younus.

While a charge of first-degree murder has been laid, police say they are still investigating the death and will be talking to witnesses in the area around Mooregate Crescent.

On Monday, a police command post remained in the area, as did evidence markers. Police officers said they would be doing a door-to-door canvass in the area in the coming days.
