A Winnipeg man already facing a murder charge is now accused of being an after-the-fact accessory to another.
Clayton Campeau, 34, was re-arrested in custody by Winnipeg police this week and accused of being an accessory after the fact to the October 2006 killing of Steven Pelletier, 29.
Earlier this year, police arrested Darrell Lavallee and charged him with second-degree murder for the "cold-case" slaying. Sources told the Free Press Lavallee is a senior leader of the Indian Posse street gang in Winnipeg.
Police said at the time they believe Pelletier was lured into a home in the 500 block of Magnus Avenue, beaten and shot. His body was then removed from the home and "dumped outside city limits" by several men.
Campeau is now the third person to face the accessory charge.
Police announced two other arrests in mid-February. Tomas Bell Francey, 36, and Ronald Allan Sobotkiewicz, 50, were charged with accessory after the fact to murder.
Police suspect they assisted Lavallee in getting rid of Pelletier's body and pledged more arrests were possible.
Campeau is currently pending trial after being arrested last year in the New Year's Eve 2011 shooting death of Michael Warren Sinclair, 36.
Sinclair was shot after he opened the rear door of a residence in the 600-block of Selkirk Avenue early in the morning of Dec. 31, 2011. He was taken to hospital in critical condition, but died from his injuries.
