Cece Luppino Relatives Targeted in Home Invasion
Attempt Murder charges laid
Four individuals from Montreal have been charged with Attempted Murder in relation to an incident which occurred on April 19, 2018. The victims of the targeted event were both related to Cece Luppino, who was murdered at his Hamilton Mountain home on January 30, 2019.
The victims were both inside a residence located on the Hamilton Mountain when three males forced their way in and stabbed one of the occupants. One of the victims fought off his attackers and ran to a neighbouring house for help. The three culprits fled the area in two vehicles, one of which was driven by a female.
The injured victim was taken to hospital where he was treated and released. The two victims provided limited information to investigators. Despite an exhaustive investigation the case was concluded pending further information in the summer of 2018.
In December 2018, as a result of information received from the Peel Regional Police and Toronto Police Services, a team of investigators from the Hamilton Police re-opened the case and identified the four persons responsible for the attack.
In April 2019, members of the Hamilton Police investigative team traveled to Montreal. The Montreal Police Service and the Surete du Quebec provided surveillance, tactical and investigative assistance which resulted in the arrests of Marc Monette and Martine Villeneuve, on April 11, 2019. Several search warrants were executed in and around the City of Montreal. Marc Monette and Martine Villeneuve were then transported back to Hamilton and have been remanded into custody since that time.
The two other accused, Charles Boucher-Savard and Jonathan Monette, son of Marc Monette, were already in custody pending charges on an unrelated matter.
They were brought before a Hamilton court this morning and formally charged with the attack.
