First-Degree Murder Charges Laid In 2010 Double Homicide Near Cranbrook, B.C.

The Canadian Press, 12 Jun, 2018
  • First-Degree Murder Charges Laid In 2010 Double Homicide Near Cranbrook, B.C.
CRANBROOK, B.C. — Police say murder charges have been laid in the shooting deaths of two people in southeastern B.C., eight years ago.
 
 
Officers were called to a rural residence near Cranbrook in May 2010, and found 43-year-old Leanne MacFarlane dead and 42-year-old Jeffrey Taylor in critical condition.
 
 
Taylor died of his injuries a short time later and RCMP said they appeared to be targeted but may not have been the intended victims.
 
 
Mounties say there have been numerous developments in the case over the years, which was dubbed Project E-Navaid.
 
 
Now, police say two former Cranbrook residents have been arrested and each charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
 
 
They say 41-year-old Colin Correia was arrested in Edmonton on Saturday and 30-year-old Sheldon Hunter was taken into custody in Drumheller, Alta., on Sunday.
 
 
Both will be transported to Vancouver, where they are scheduled to appear in B.C. Supreme Court on Wednesday.
 
 
Sgt. Jason Smart says MacFarlane and Taylor's deaths took a toll on their community.
 
 
"The murders of Jeff and Leanne were tragic and their deaths deeply impacted the lives of their family members," he says in a news release.
 
 
"The core group of investigators dedicated to this file would like to thank those family members for their persistence, understanding, patience and courage throughout the last eight years."
