Bruno-Carl Langlois has been charged with second degree murder and will appear next Thursday at the Granby courthouse. While awaiting his sentence, the accused will remain detained, said a spokesman for the Sûreté du Québec.

His victim, Carl Langlois, was an “adult man”, whose lifeless body was found shortly before 1 p.m. on Friday in a residence on Saint-Paul Street.

Before being able to intervene, the emergency services dispatched to the scene had to call on representatives of Animal Control of Montérégie to help them control the many pit bulls that were inside the house.

The victim had already passed away when help arrived at his bedside.
