MONTAGUE – The RCMP has issued a statement just after 9 p.m. today saying that charges of first degree murder have been laid against Alfred Guy Vuozzo arising from a incident Wednesday on St. Mary's Road West.
"P.E.I. RCMP Major Crime Unit brought 46-year-old Alfred Guy Vuozzo before a justice of the peace in Georgetown this evening," said the statement.
"Mr. Vuozzo will make his next court appearance next week in Georgetown Court and was remanded in custody until his next court appearance," said the satement.
Two men, a father and son were killed at the father's home along the rural road south of Montague. They had been found about 9 p.m.
As the investigation proceeded through the night, said RCMP Sgt. Leanne Butler, Vuozzo was identified as a suspect and was taken into custody from a private home on the edges of Montague without incident around 7:40 a.m. Thursday morning.
"(The suspect and the victims) are not related by family or marriage," said Butler, the RCMP media relations officer on Thursday.
The degree and manner of how they knew each other is still being investigated, she said.
"They did live relatively close to each other, 10 minutes apart," said Butler.
An emergency response team was called to assist, as was a forensic team and a police dog team.
