Ontario Provincial Police say they have now laid charges in connection to the assault of a 14-year-old male in Kirkland Lake nearly two weeks ago. 

Police have charged 33-year-old Troy Lautaoja, of Kirkland Lake, with aggravated assault and attempted murder in this incident.

It happened around 6:15 pm on March 23.

Police arrived at the scene on Hudson Bay Avenue to find the teen with a head injury.  He was transported to the hospital for treatment.

Later that evening, Troy's mother, Brenda Lautaoja, 68, was found dead.

Troy has been accused of second-degree murder in that case. 

He remains in custody pending bail.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.
