CFB Trenton commander faces 2 homicide charges
The commander of CFB Trenton has been charged with two counts of homicide in the deaths of two women, including a corporal at Trenton and a 27-year-old Belleville woman who vanished 11 days ago.
Col. Russell Williams, 46, was also charged Monday in connection with two home invasions in the Tweed area, Det. Insp. Chris Nicholas said at a news conference today in Belleville.
The charges came âdue to a singularity in those incidents,â Nicholas said. âWe linked those crimes to a single suspect.â
Jessica Lloyd 27, vanished Jan. 28 and police on Monday that her body had been found. A second woman, Cpl. Marie France Comeau of the 435th squadron, Trenton, was found dead in her home in Brighton on Nov. 25, 2009.
Earlier Monday, police surrounded the home of Williams., who took command of the base last year.
We've had a couple of Colonels serve time for having their fingers in the till, but this is the first time I've heard of a Base Commander being charged with murder.
