A man, his wife and their son are charged with four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of three Montreal sisters and their caregiver, who were found dead in a submerged car near Kingston, Ont.

The bodies of the three teenaged sisters and the 50-year-old woman were found in the car in the Rideau Canal on June 30.

Kingston police Chief Stephen Tanner told a news conference this afternoon he was saddened at the “needless and senseless loss of innocent human lives,” in what he described as a case of domestic violence.

Sad and sickening to know that families immigrate to the west to flee opression and yet not willing to obey the Rules of their new country.

The Toronto Star was reporting earlier that this might have been an “Honour” killing :mad:
