A man has been arrested and charged in the murder of a senior outside the Front Room Drop in Centre last month.

On July 25, police responded to a stabbing in the 10600-block of 135A Street.

They found Donald Williams Deweyn, 63, suffering from stab wounds. He was taken to hospital, where he died.

On Wednesday, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) arrested 22-year-old Dylan Robert Dempsey, who possesses a criminal record dating back to 2007.

“Although an arrest has been made, IHIT will continue to aggressively investigate this homicide as we believe there are persons of interest who have information that have yet to come forward," IHIT Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound said in a release on Wednesday.

If you have any information about this homicide you are asked to contact IHIT by calling their tipline 1-877-551-4448 or, Crimestoppers if you wish to remain anonymous 1-800-222-8477
