Geary man charged with first-degree murder
A 47-year-old Geary man has been charged with first-degree murder. Harry McKenna did not enter a plea Wednesday. He was remanded to custody and will be back in court in two weeks. He was arrested after 61-year-old Kirk Blair was found dead in his Branch Road home early Wednesday morning. RCMP also arrested a 24-year-old man in connection with the incident. Officials asked for the public’s help in locating D.J. Doucette and released his name and his description earlier in the day. He has yet to be charged. The cause of death has not been released. The Mounties do say all three men knew each other and they’re treating this as an isolated incident.
CBC New Brunswick
Justice Minister Marie-Claude Blais says new security measures have been added at the Moncton courthouse after a prisoner smuggled a BB gun past security.
A prisoner managed to sneak the pistol past both police officers and courthouse sheriffs before it was eventually discovered in a holding cell.
No charges were laid in the incident because owning a BB gun is not an offense.
Have you seen one of these BB guns? How hard are they to distinguish from a real gun? And do you think they pose any danger to people carrying them around?
