SURREY, B.C. — Police in B.C. say they have laid charges against three men in connection with the 2007 slaying of six men in an apartment in Surrey in 2007.
RCMP Assistant Commissioner Peter German says Cody Ray Haevischer and Matthew James Johnson, both 24, have been charged with first degree murder and being co-conspirators in the slayings of all six.
He says James Kyle Bacon, 23, is charged with first degree murder in the deaths of one of the men and as a co-conspirator in the killings.
Their associate, Dennis Karbovaec, quietly admitted in B.C. Supreme Court on Friday to his part in the deaths of three of the men.
The victims of the Oct. 19, 2007 targeted gang hit were Edward Narong, 22, Corey Lal, 21, his 26-year-old brother Michael, Ryan Bartolomeo, 19, Chris Mohan, 22, and 55-year-old Edward Schellenberg.
Police say Schellenberg, who was in the apartment building servicing fireplaces, and Mohan were innocent victims while the other four men had criminal ties.
