Man charged with murder after death in Alexandria

One man has been charged with second-degree murder after Khanh Nguyen, a 29-year-old man from Ottawa, died at the Glengarry Memorial Hospital on June 5.

Police say a 61-year-old man from Montreal and another 29-year-old man from Ottawa dropped Nguyen off at the hospital at about 7:20 p.m. on June 5, before driving away in a white Honda Odyssey. Nguyen was seriously injured and died shortly afterwards, police said.

The Odyssey was spotted headed south on County Road 34 in South Glengarry about 25 minutes later. It was stopped by police and both occupants were arrested. The man from Montreal has been accused of second degree murder, as well as production of marijuana. The other, from Ottawa, was charged with being an accessory to murder after the fact as well as production of marijuana.

Both are scheduled to appear in court on June 8 in Cornwall.
