“I did the murders” – Charbonneau

Claude Charbonneau, rounded up for two recent homicides, got up in court Thursday and admitted he’d done the killings. Charbonneau is 61, so he’s not likely to see daylight again. This piece explains that while he wanted to plead guilty right away, a technicality means he can’t even do so till he’s seen in Superior Court, which deals with murder cases.

What this story doesn’t explicate at all is why a 61-year-old man killed these two men, aged 68 and 80. How police knew Charbonneau was responsible for two murders in different neighbourhoods has also not been explained in the media. Maybe he left a note.
