A father has just been charged for the murders of his wife and their two young children in a condo tower in Brossard this weekend.
Mohamad Al Ballouz, 36, appeared from hospital by telephone this afternoon. He is accused of premeditated killing of his two and five year old children. He also faces a charge of the unpremeditated murder of Synthia Bussière, 38.
On the night of Saturday to Sunday, the firefighters were first called to go to the accommodation, after a fire alarm was triggered.
If the fire turned out to be minor, the first responders nevertheless made the macabre discovery.
The co-owner of the residence, Synthia Bussières, 38, was said to have been violently stabbed there, while her two children aged 2 and 5 were said to have been drowned, reported earlier on Journal.
Al Ballouz is also charged with arson.
