Suspect to learn June 25 if murder charges thrown out

  • Print

A man charged with the brutal murder of two gang members in 2009 will learn at the end of the month if he will be going to trial.

A hearing concluded this week on a motion by Kenneth Roulette to have charges of first-degree murder thrown out.

Justice Robert Dewar imposed a ban on publication of all evidence presented at the hearing. Dewar will release his decision June 25.

The bodies of Dennis Ray Baptiste, 23, and Jesse Edward Henderson, 23, were found in a Maryland Street apartment building in 2009.

Roulette, 28, was arrested in Calgary in 2010 on an unrelated matter and subsequently charged with the Maryland Street killings. Winnipeg Police said all three men knew each other and had gang ties.

A jury trial, if the charges stand, is expected to begin in October.
