WINNIPEG (CityNews) − Winnipeg police have arrested a second suspect believed to be involved in the murder of a 33-year-old Winnipeg man.

Police say Tre Daniel Pelletier-Monkman, 24, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder in connection with Adam Albert LaForrest’s death on June 16.

Police arrested Pelletier-Monkman on Friday, two days after the alleged incident.

WPS had already arrested Carla Bridgette Duck, 38, and charged her with manslaughter. She remains in police custody.

Police believe the June 16 incident unfolded when Duck assaulted LaForrest during a physical altercation near Main Street and Dufferin Avenue. They allege Pelletier-Monkman drove by the argument, stopped, exited his vehicle and assaulted LaForrest before driving away. Duck was arrested at the scene.

WPS don’t believe Duck, Pelletier-Monkman or LaForrest knew each other prior to the altercation.

Officers arrived on the scene to find LaForrest seriously injured. He was taken to hospital where he died of his injuries.

The WPS homicide unit is investigating.
