Belleville, Ontario – (Quinte News)
A former Stirling man is facing serious charges after a body was pulled from the Kemptville Creek earlier this month.
Thirty-year-old Matthew Vincent Benoit appeared in Brockville court this week to answer charges of indignity to a human body and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence after the body of a 27-year-old man was found in a duffle bag, October 14.
Benoit is a graduate of St. Teresa Secondary School and was residing in Ottawa while working at a tattoo parlor.
A 26-year-old man has also been charged in the case, and OPP are looking for a third suspect.
Benoit will next appear in Brockville court Monday for a bail hearing.
