Second teen charged in relation to fatal downtown stabbing

Teen charged with accessory after the fact to murder
Friends and loved ones of Preston Pellerin, who has been identified as the victim of an alleged homicide on Nov. 15, gathered at a makeshift memorial in downtown Sudbury at the site of the teen's death. A second teen was recently charged in connection to the incident. 

Greater Sudbury Police have charged a second individual in relation to a fatal stabbing in the city's downtown last November.

On Nov. 15, 2019, 17-year-old Preston Pellerin was fatally stabbed on Cedar Street.

A day later, on Nov. 16, 2019, 18-year-old Steffin Rees was arrested and charged with Second Degree Murder.

As a result of further investigation by detectives in the GSPS Criminal Investigations Division, an 18-year-old man was arrested on April 5, and charged with accessory after the fact to murder and obstruct justice.

He was released on a promise to appear with a first appearance court date of Nov. 15, 2020. 

His name can't be released as the information has not yet been sworn to through the court process.
