A Toronto police officer was charged in connection with the murder investigation of Bill Horace, a former rebel Liberian leader who was shot in London, Ontario, in June.
Const. Trevor Gregory, 46, is the father of a suspect accused in the death of Horácio, 44 years old.
Members of the London Major Crimes Section arrested and accused Gregory of breach of trust on Tuesday. Gregory's son, Keiron Gregory, 22, was charged on June 25 with second-degree murder in the case, but remains free.
The police did not say what Trevor Gregory is accused of in relation to the breach of trust charge. He was released into custody and awaits a hearing in London on 29 September.
Horace was shot and killed after a home invasion in East London on the morning of 21 June. Police say four men entered a house at 232 Pochard Lane, attacking and shooting him. When emergency crews arrived, he was found sprawled in front of a neighbor's house.
Horace served as a rebel commander under Charles Taylor, a former Liberian warlord and convicted war criminal. He fled Liberia and came to Canada in 2002, where he applied for refugee status.
All four suspects in the case remain at large.
