An Ottawa newspaper says the Father of the man accused of murder and attempt murder this week in Belleville believes his son was simply defending himself.
Doug Hughes, Father of the accused, Mile Hughes, says there was a party going on when a woman crashed the party. She was not welcome. Hughes added that later, after people had gone to bed, the woman’s friends, 6 men, came back with baseball bats and guns. Thereafter a shooting occurred.
Police have not confirmed any of this, and continue to investigate.
21 year old Miles Hughes was charged, after 24 year Roy Mays was shot to death. 19 year old Justin Coughlin is recovering from injuries.
