A Calgary man is facing murder charges in the stabbing death of a man outside a Mission area bar.
During the three-week homicide investigation, cops also uncovered an arsenal of illegal weapons in the home of the accused, leading to additional weapons-related charges.
Daniel Norquay, 30, died of multiple stab wounds following a disturbance outside of a bar in the 2100 block of 4 St. S.W. on Oct. 12.
Police responded to an initial disturbance with several men who were carrying weapons and involved in an altercation after inappropriate comments were made by the accused to a pair of young women outside the bar.
When more cops responded, they found a group providing assistance to another man, later identified as Norquay, who had been stabbed. He was taken to hospital but died a short time later.
When originally arrested during the altercation on the night of the stabbing, police said the accused had a number of weapons with him — but nothing compared with the cache cops uncovered at his home.
An anti-tank grenade launcher with grenades, an uzi, carbine rifles, knives, shotguns and handguns were among the weapons seized by police.
Lee Wesley Hollinger, 36, is charged with second-degree murder, two counts of assault and 42 weapons-related offences.
