Cops bag Xmas Card Killer

It's official... Kitchener Police have charged the suspect they arrested, for an earlier, separate assault... for the brutal murder of an elderly man.

-- KITCHENER, Ont. -- A Kitchener man has been charged with first degree murder in connection with the death of 74-year-old Hunter Brown, who was killed Saturday as he delivered his Christmas cards.

Several hours after releasing details of a similar assault Monday on a man who was shovelling snow just a few streets away, police arrested and charged a suspect in that assault.

On Tuesday evening, Waterloo Region police charged the 22-year-old with murder.
