Police released a man shortly after he allegedly slaughtered his entire family. Now, he’s back in cuffs and accused of the heinous crimes.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced the arrest of Trevis McLeod last week. He was arrested without incident.
Police had been searching for him a couple of days before he was arrested.
He is accused of the homicide of his 32-year-old wife and two children, according to the CBC. The children were 6 years old and 3 years old. They were found in a Portage la Prairie home on April 10. Portage la Prairie is about 50 miles from Winnipeg.
The victims were found in a home that was burned, according to the CBC.
Shortly after the fire, McLeod was arrested and charged with assault of another family member, according to CBC. But he was released as officers didn’t have enough to hold the suspect in connection to the homicide.
Evidence was found that led police to charge McLeod, but officials have not detailed what that entailed.
