A man has been arrested and charged in the murder of a senior outside the Front Room Drop in Centre last month.

On July 25, police responded to a stabbing in the 10600-block of 135A Street.

They found Donald Williams Deweyn, 63, suffering from stab wounds. He was taken to hospital, where he died.

On Wednesday, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) arrested 22-year-old Dylan Robert Dempsey, who possesses a criminal record dating back to 2007.
