SUDBURY -- A second man has now been charged in connection with the stabbing death of a 17-year-old in downtown Sudbury last November.

It happened on Cedar Street on Nov. 15, 2019.

After initially charging an 18-year-old man with second-degree murder in connection with the alleged homicide, police in Sudbury are now also charging a second 18-year-old man in the incident with the following:

  • Accessory After the Fact to Murder
  • Obstruct Justice

Police say the man was released on a promise to appear in court  on the anniversary of the incident, Nov. 15, 2020.

His name cannot be released as the information has not yet been sworn to through the court process.

Officials confirm the stabbing was not a random act of violence and that it was a dispute between two individuals who knew each other.

None of the allegations has been proven in court
