Suspect in homicide of Justin Breau turns herself in, Saint John police say
Saint John police say Sarah Belzil, who was allegedly involved in the homicide of Justin Breau, has turned herself in.
On Wednesday, police said an arrest warrant had been issued for Belzil on a charge of first-degree murder. Belzil is to appear in court on Friday.
She is the fifth person arrested in the fatal stabbing of Breau in August 2022.
Four men have been charged with first-degree murder so far. A fifth man has been at large since a warrant was issued for his arrest in late January, according to police.
Police say Evan Louis Tobias, 28, is six feet tall with a medium build, black curly hair, brown eyes and two face tattoos.
Police have said masked intruders stabbed Breau in his apartment on Charles Street on Aug. 17, 2022.
Donald Robert Walker, 50, Dustin Trey Walker-Hammond, 24, Charles William Shatford, 47, and Travis Boudreau, 33, have all been charged with first-degree murder.
In December 2020, Breau was found not guilty of murdering Shatford's brother Mark. At trial, Breau said he shot Mark Shatford in self-defence on the west side of the city after a drug deal went awry on Nov. 17, 2019.
