Two Quebec men arrested in hammer attacks denied bail

LAVAL, Que. — Two Quebec men arrested for allegedly striking people with hammers will remain behind bars at least until next week.

In Laval, Francis Jutras was arraigned on Thursday on six charges, including one of first-degree murder in the death of Francois-Xavier Theberge.

The other charges against Jutras, 34, include two of attempted murder.

Jutras, who allegedly attacked the three people on Tuesday night, will return to court on Oct. 22 after undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.

In Trois-Rivieres, Marc Perron was arraigned on charges of aggravated assault, armed assault, unlawful confinement and possession of marijuana.

Perron, 56, will remain behind bars at least until Oct. 23 after Crown prosecutor Marie-Eve Paquet objected to his release.

He was charged after a 14-year-old girl was attacked in Trois-Rivieres on Tuesday evening.
