Two more arrested in fatal double shooting in Brantford
BRANTFORD -- Two more people have been arrested and charged in a fatal 2019 shooting that left two people dead.
Dorothy Lynn VanEvery and Larry Reynolds were murdered in their home in July of that year.
Back in March, 22-year-old Kareem Zedan from Pickering was charged with two counts of first-degree murder after being arrested in Thunder Bay, some 1,500 kilometres away from the crime scene.
Two other people are now in custody.
Thirty-year-old Nathan Llloyd Emlyn Howes of Brantford faces two counts of first-degree murder. He was arrested on Monday, and has a scheduled court appearance on Sept. 28.
Court documents show VanEvery and Reynolds were killed on Jul7 18, 2019. The documents also reveal Howes was charged with robbery days after the murder for an unrelated incident that happened two months prior.
On Tuesday, 19-year-old Malik Mbuyi of Toronto was arrested for two counts of first-degree murder. His next appearance is scheduled for Sept. 25.
Both were already in custody on other, unrelated charges.
Officials say that the shooting was believed to be intentionally targeted, and not a random act of violence.
Brantford police are also offering a $50,000 reward for information related to the shooting death of 22-year-old Coby Carter, who was killed 10 days before VanEvery and Reynolds.
Police said they haven't ruled out a possible connection between the crimes.
