A man has been charged with multiple counts of murder and arson in connection with the triple homicide of his wife and two young children on Montreal’s south shore.
Mohamad Al Ballouz, 36, is the same man who was questioned by investigators and was previously considered an “important witness” by Longueuil police.
Police say he appeared by telephone at the Longueuil courthouse Monday afternoon from his hospital bed, where he remains in custody.
Al Ballouz is facing two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of two children and one count of second-degree murder in his wife Synthia Bussières’ death. He has also been charged with arson with disregard for human life.
Authorities responded to a fire early Sunday morning at a residential building in Brossard, where the three victims were found inside the apartment. The fire was contained to that residence and no damages to the building were reported.
