According to a report from the Hamilton Spectator [via Punknews], 28-year-old Delottinville, along with George Cooke and Matthew Cooke, has been accused of the murder of retired antiques dealer Jessie Kovacs, 55, who was found dead in his apartment on December 22. Found tied up with his hands taped behind his back, police believed that the man had been dead for three days.
According to the report, police believe the murder is a case of a robbery gone wrong.
