In­mate con­victed of man­slaugh­ter, dis­mem­ber­ment faces sex charge

Cape Breton Post - - CANADA -

WIN­NIPEG — An in­mate at Man­i­toba’s Stony Moun­tain pen­i­ten­tiary has been charged in a four-year-old sex­ual as­sault case. In­ves­ti­ga­tors say they used DNA ev­i­dence to iden­tify a sus­pect in an at­tack on a 20-yearold woman on a Win­nipeg street in July 2011. Po­lice say the woman was knocked un­con­scious and sex­u­ally as­saulted by an at­tacker, who fled when a wit­ness in­ter­vened. Emery Miles McLeod, who is 41, is charged with sex­ual as­sault caus­ing bod­ily harm. McLeod, who is serv­ing a 15year sen­tence for man­slaugh­ter in the death of his for­mer room­mate, was charged ear­lier this month. Darin Mo­nias was killed and dis­mem­bered in 2012 in what McLeod’s lawyers ar­gued was a con­sen­sual wrest­ing match that got out of hand. They said McLeod, who was found not guilty of sec­ond-de­gree mur­der, cut up the body to con­ceal his room­mate’s death.
