A 25-year-old man has been charged with first-degree murder following a deadly attack over the weekend.
Kenneth Oteng is accused of killing 24-year-old Anthony St-Jean Lamothe shortly after 3 a.m. on May 14 at the intersection near Sherbrooke St. and St. Laurent Blvd.
Witnesses said that several people got into a vicious fight when bars closed, and several people were treated at the scene for cuts and stab wounds.
He was questioned Tuesday and arraigned in court on Wednesday.
Oteng will have to make a formal request for bail, which is unlikely since he was already out on bail while attending trial for on drug charges.
If convicted of first-degree murder, Oteng will be automatically sentenced to life in prison without any chance of release for 25 years.
