Three stabbing victims confirmed as a family

The suspect and the three victims in the triple homicide this week have been confirmed to be part of a family and the ages suggest they were the suspect’s parents and a grandparent. Arthur Galarneau is to appear in court Saturday.

The Journal says the victims were Galarneau’s parents and his grandmother.

These killings were #3, #4 and #5 of the year. Radio-Canada has an interesting observation. The first two homicides were also apparent matricides, and both also carried out with knives.

Update: Galarneau was charged with three counts of second-degree murder on Saturday. CTV has names and photos of the victims now.
