Attempted Murder Charges for Three Suspects in Limoilou

Attempted Murder Charges for Three Suspects in Limoilou

2014-08-20 Stabbing

Quebec City (Quebec) August 20, 2014 – In the early hours of last Sunday morning August 17, a man was viciously attacked and stabbed three times in Parc Iberville in the borough of Limoilou. The man was able to reach the sidewalk before he collapsed on the corner of 1st street and 8th avenue where he was found clinging to his life.

Police were quick to react and arrested three young individuals who were already known to the law enforcers from other incidents. The three offenders are Jean Samuel Bilodeau 18, Cyndi D’Astous-Desjardins 19, and Merick Dion-Guénard and are being charged for attempted murder. Bilodeau and Guénard already have several convictions on record and Bilodeau himself served 20 days time behind bars for vehicle theft and dangerous driving from a previous arrest.

As for D’Astous-Desjardins police are being a bit more lenient as she may have been less involved and doesn’t have a lawyer to represent her yet. The lawyer for the prosecution, Mme Sarah-Julie Chicoine, wants the three held without bail until they can appear in court, presuming they are a menace to society.

The trio is expected to appear in court on August 25 and could be facing a life sentence if found guilty of the attempted murder charges. The victim of the attack is being treated in hospital and is reportedly recovering from his wounds satisfactorily.
