The youngest of the three Bacon brothers made his first appearance in provincial court in Surrey Tuesday, charged with murder in the 2007 ‘Surrey Six’ slaying.

Wearing a red corrections-issue sweat suit with XXXL over the left breast, Jamie Kyle Bacon, 23, a heavyset man with a buzz cut, stared out at the gallery prior to the proceedings.

His parents were in the courtroom as was his brother Jarrod Bacon, who appeared alongside Jamie on previously scheduled weapons charges.


Bacon, an alleged member of the Red Scorpions gang, watched the proceedings with apparent interest and nodded to his brother as he was remanded in custody until his next court appearance May 15.

Bacon is charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to kill Corey Lal, 21. Neither he, nor his two co-accused, have entered a plea.

One of the co-accused, Matt Johnston, 24, appeared by video link from a corrections facility Monday.

Johnston is charged with six counts of first-degree murder for the Surrey Six mass killings at the Balmoral Tower on Oct. 19, 2007.

Along with Corey Lal, killed in the hit were Michael Lal, Ryan Bartolomeo and Eddie Narong, as well as innocent bystanders Ed Schellenberg and Chris Mohan.

Another co-accused, Cody Haevischer, 24, who is also charged with six counts of first-degree murder, made his first court appearance on Monday.

Following the brief appearance, Jarrod, who was wearing a black suit, tie and sunglasses, walked to a white pickup that was driven by Jonathan Bacon, the eldest of the three.

Dennis Karbovanec, who pled guilty Friday to the second-degree murder of Mohan, Bartolomeo and Michael Lal, will be sentenced in B.C. Supreme Court Wednesday.
