An accused murderer released on bail last year is back behind bars and facing new charges following an alleged incident in Ontario.
Gordon James Fleming, 67, who is charged with murdering an acquaintance in a Logan Lake motel last year, has been charged with two counts of assault.
A Toronto police spokesman told KTW Fleming was arrested on Jan. 6. He had been released on bail in April 2018, weeks after his arrest in Logan Lake.
Fleming’s bail was cancelled in B.C. Supreme Court on Monday and he remains behind bars.
Police were called to the Copper Valley Motel in Logan Lake on March 1, 2018, and found an unresponsive man inside a suite. David James Fast, 55, was later pronounced dead. He had been stabbed to death.
The murder was the first recorded homicide in Logan Lake, a town of about 2,000, located about 45 minutes southwest of Kamloops.
Fleming was arrested at the motel. Investigators said at the time that the two men were known to one another.
Fleming will make his next appearance in Kamloops provincial court on Feb. 27, the start of his preliminary inquiry into the second-degree murder charge.
