Ottawa police have arrested a man in the death of Adrian Johnson, the 45-year-old panhandler who was stabbed in the Byward Market early Saturday morning.
Damien Dubien, 33, was charged with second-degree murder and appeared in court by way of videoconference on Wednesday. He was reportedly known to police and had a past conviction for drug trafficking.
There, he was ordered not to contact anyone on a list of nearly two-dozen witnesses, and will next appear on Dec. 6.
Johnson was a long-time veteran of the streets, and his death marked the 13th homicide in Ottawa this year.
