The Abbotsford News has learned that a third person has been charged with the 2008 murders of Lisa Dudley and Guthrie McKay of Mission.

Bruce Main, 64, of Maple Ridge joins co-accused Jack Douglas Woodruff, 52, of Surrey and Justin Andrew MacKinnon, 25, of no fixed address in two counts each of first-degree murder.

Main made his first appearance today (Monday) in Abbotsford provincial court and is next scheduled to appear on Thursday, Sept. 22 – exactly three years since the murders. He has no previous criminal record in B.C., according to the provincial court database.

Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokesperson for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said police are releasing few details about Main’s arrest or background, other than to confirm his charges.

“We’re not speaking to the connection (among the three accused),” she said.

Pound said police are continuing their investigation.

Dudley, 37, and her boyfriend McKay, 33, were found by a neighbour on Sept. 22, 2008 in the 31000 block of Greenwood Drive in Mission four days after a 911 call was received that several shots had been fired in the area.

McKay was pronounced dead on the scene. Dudley was in severe medical distress and died en route to hospital.

Woodruff was charged in May, followed by MacKinnon in June. A trial date has not yet been set, but the preliminary inquiry is scheduled to begin June 5 in Abbotsford.
