A 37-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of Jesse Kennedy in Mission last month.
The 42-year-old man was found with a stab wound after Mission RCMP were called to the 32500-block of Lougheed Highway at about 6 p.m. on July 13.
Kennedy was taken to a local hospital where he died, and a suspect was quickly identified and taken into custody.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said John Powers, who remains in custody, was charged with murder on Friday.
“This charge is a direct result of the great work done by the members of the Mission RCMP and the IHIT investigative team,” said Sgt. Timothy Pierotti of IHIT. “Anyone affected by this tragedy in need of help can contact the Mission RCMP’s victim services.”
