The suspect in a double murder in Mountain View has been arrested in Trenton. Jay Miller of Millbro Automotive saw a young man in the back of an O-P-P cruiser near his shop on Dundas Street East shortly after 9-30 this morning. OPP confirm the arrest but the suspects name hasn’t been released but our newsroom has learned the suspect knew the victims. Two female victims were found dead this morning at 305 Valley Road and another female is at Kingston General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Miller says he is upset about the increase in the local murder rate which is hitting way too close to home.
This morning’s murders are the latest in a series of murders in the Quinte Region over the past few months. Jessica Lloyd, Marie-France Comeau, Steffany Gardiner, Robert Vaillancourt, Lisa-Marie Palmiere, and Mark Patterson have all been murdered in the last year.
