HAL­I­FAX — A man ac­cused of killing an off-duty Nova Scotia po­lice of­fi­cer has been charged with breach­ing his bail con­di­tions.

Hal­i­fax po­lice say Christo­pher Calvin Garnier could not be found over the week­end at ei­ther of the two places where he is per­mit­ted to re­side. Garnier is charged with sec­ond­de­gree mur­der in the 2015 death of Truro po­lice of­fi­cer Cather­ine Camp­bell, and won bail shortly be­fore Christ­mas. Hal­i­fax po­lice said they made “nu­mer­ous at­tempts’’ to reach Garnier at a Bed­ford apart­ment late Fri­day and Satur­day, and asked Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Po­lice to do the same at a res­i­dence in Mil­lville.

They say he was fi­nally lo­cated Sun­day morn­ing at the Mil­lville res­i­dence.

Garnier was re­turned to Hal­i­fax and was sched­uled to ap­pear in Hal­i­fax pro­vin­cial court to­day on three counts of breach­ing a re­cog­ni­zance. Camp­bell had served as a Truro po­lice con­sta­ble for six years be­fore she died. Garnier’s mur­der trial is sched­uled to be­gin on Nov. 20. The 28-year-old Hal­i­fax res­i­dent was also charged with in­ter­fer­ing with a dead body af­ter Camp­bell’s re­mains were found in Septem­ber 2015 near the base of an over­pass in Hal­i­fax.
