2 1st degree Murder charges to be laid- 1 2nd degree

Nathan O’Brien and his grandparents were murdered, Calgary police say as they move to charge suspect | National Post

CALGARY — Calgary police say two charges of first-degree murder and one charge of second-degree murder are pending in the disappearance of a five-year-old boy and his grandparents.

Chief Rick Hanson says a man has been arrested but he can’t identify him because he has yet to appear before a justice of the peace.

Nathan O’Brien and his grandparents, Kathryn and Alvin Liknes, haven’t been seen since June 29 after what police say was a violent incident in the Liknes house.

Hanson says their bodies have not been found.

Sources have confirmed to the Calgary Herald that the only person of interest in the case, Douglas Garland, was re-arrested today.

The police chief would not speculate on motive, saying the matter was to go before the courts.
