Two more men have been charged with murder after a man was fatally shot in his home in Chestermere, Alta., more than two years ago.

Dennis Lewis, 41, was found in his home in Chestermere, just east of Calgary, on Nov. 26, 2018, suffering from a gunshot wound. He later died in hospital.

After a lengthy investigation, the RCMP major crimes unit first charged Richard Michael Sikora, 37, of Calgary with second-degree murder in March, and released security camera images as they continued to search for more suspects.

Calgarians Jacob Tolchinsky, 29, and Justin Gittens, 37, have been taken into custody on first-degree murder charges, RCMP said Tuesday.

Both are scheduled to appear in Calgary Provincial Court on May 4, 2021.

It's believed that a stolen burgundy 2015 Ford Edge Sport was involved in the incident.

It was captured on security cameras in the area of the homicide and was later recovered in northeast Calgary.

This burgundy 2015 Ford Edge Sport, which was stolen, was involved in Lewis's murder, RCMP said.
