CrimProf Sanjeev Anand Discusses Mountie Murders

1_anand_smlFrom canada.com: University of Alberta CrimProf Sanjeev Anand recently discussed two additional arrest in the case of slain Canadian Mountie Brock Myrol.

CrimProf Sanjeev Anand said a murder charge can be laid if someone is suspected of assisting or even encouraging a murder."Any murder of a police officer is elevated to first-degree murder," he said.

Myrol and three other RCMP members were shot to death on a farm near Mayerthorpe by James Roszko, who then killed himself.

Dennis Keegan Rodney Cheeseman, 23, and Shawn William Hennessey, 28, face four counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of four RCMP officers near Mayerthorpe in 2005.
