Fourth man charged with first-degree murder
A fourth man has been arrested for the murder of 51-year-old Daniel Richard DiPaolo.
Johnathen Edward Kakewash, 31, was arrested by Winnipeg Police Service for weapons-related charges.
Once the charges in Winnipeg were dealt with, Kakewash was arrested and charged on the DiPaolo matter.
Kakewash, of Winnipeg, is charged with first-degree murder and made his first appearance on the charge in Regina provincial court on Friday afternoon.
Kakewash said he wanted to speak with a lawyer and he will stay in custody until his next appearance on Sept. 28 — the same day his three co-accused are set to return to court.
Christopher Matthew Brass, 34, and 25-year-old Malcolm Mitchell, both of no fixed address in Winnipeg, are charged with first-degree murder in DiPaolo’s death.
Edward Genaille had previously been charged with first-degree murder in DiPaolo’s death.
DiPaolo’s death was the city’s first homicide of 2017.
The investigation initially began early on the morning of April 29 when police were called to a house in the 700 block of Garnet Street for a report of an injured man. Police and EMS attended and found 51-year-old DiPaolo dead.
Earlier in the investigation, major crimes investigators believed there was more than one person involved in the killing.
The investigation led police to Winnipeg.
