The latest Quinte area murder suspect will appear in Belleville court again tomorrow. 19-year old Kadeem Francis was charged with second degree murder and assault in the death of a Mississauga man at Trudeau Park near Tweed over the long weekend. He made a brief court appearance yesterday. The 6-foot-3, 350-pound Francis of Belleville is described by a friend as a “happy go lucky guy” who may have been “caught up with the wrong crowd”. Two other men, one from Pefferlaw and the other from Innisfil Beach, are charged with second degree murder in the case.
28-year old Bradley Van Diepen died at Kingston General after succumbing to injuries suffered in a beating early Saturday morning. If you have information on the incident you’re asked to call Central Hastings OPP.
The Quinte area has been plagued with murders so far in 2010. Colonel Russell Williams was charged in February with the murders of two local women, Dean Brown is charged with the shooting deaths of a mother and daughter in Prince Edward County, Myles Hughes is charged with the shooting death of a man in Belleville, two men were charged with the shooting of a Trenton woman and a man was charged with beating another man to death in Rednersville.
