Amber Alert dad faces additional charges
The man at the heart of an Amber Alert in Quebec this summer has had a murder charge upgraded and another one added. Ugo Fredette was charged on Monday with second-degree murder in the death of Yvon Lacasse, a 71-year-old man whose body was found last September. He also had the charge in the death of his former partner Véronique Barbe upgraded to first-degree murder from second-degree murder. The accused’s missing six-year-old son was found alive by police in Lacasse’s car.
