Police upgrade murder charge to first degree murder.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON. June 14, 2015 As a result of further investigation, Halton Regional Police homicide detectives have determined the murder of Parmanand (Barry) DEBIE was a deliberate, pre-planned act and have accordingly upgraded the charge against Calvin GREEN to first degree murder.

GREEN will attend a bail hearing this morning at 10:00 a.m. at the Milton Provincial Court.

A number of Gazette readers have commented and complained that the police are being unfair with the language they are using and that it is a court of law that makes the decision as to guilt.

The role of the police is to investigate and then lay what they feel are appropriate charges under the Criminal Code Act.  A court of lay will then decide if the person is guilty or not guilty.

Those readers have a point.
