Toronto police say a man wanted in connection with the fatal stabbing of David Blacquiere has surrendered to police.

Demetrius McFarquhar, 24, surrendered to Toronto Police Service on Tuesday at 6 a.m.

McFarquhar is charged with accessory after the fact to murder, attempting to obstruct justice and failure to comply recognizance.

The stabbing on Nov. 14 left Blacquiere, 54, of Angus, Ont., dead.

Darrell Blacquiere told The Guardian recently that his brother, David, who was an ironworker, had been planning to move back to P.E.I. in December to semi-retire.

A Canada-wide warrant remains in place for 18-year-old Christopher Enrique Gordon.

Police believe Gordon and Blacquiere had driven together into a parking lot and got into a verbal fight just before the stabbing.

Gordon, also known as “Mikey” and “Lefty,” is known to police. He’s from Barrie, Ont., and was staying in Toronto at the time of the murder.

It’s alleged that McFarquhar helped Gordon escape from the crime scene.
