Cal­gary po­lice say two peo­ple fac­ing charges re­lated to a quadru­ple homi­cide this sum­mer knew all the dead.

Yu Chieh Liao, who also goes by Diana Liao, and Te­wodros Kebede are charged with first de­gree mur­der in the death of 26-year-old Hanock Afow­erk.

The pair also face three counts of ac­ces­sory af­ter the fact in the deaths of Cody Pfeif­fer, 25, Glyn­nis Fox, 36, and Tif­fany Ear, 39.

Po­lice had ear­lier said they be­lieved Pfeif­fer, Fox and Ear were in the wrong place at the wrong time and got caught up in an at­tack on Afow­erk.

Act­ing Insp. Paul Wozney says in­ves­ti­ga­tors now be­lieve all six peo­ple knew each other, but he wouldn’t go so far as to say the three found in the car were tar­geted.

Wozney says it’s be­lieved loose crim­i­nal net­works were in­volved in killings, which po­lice have de­scribed as ruth­less and bru­tal.
