Homicide investigators in the Special Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division have laid charges against 24-year-old Jordan Rodrigues in connection with the 2011 homicide of James Gregory Wareham.
At 11:15 p.m. on May 22, 2011, officers responded to an apartment in the 0-100 block of Primrose Street in Dartmouth after receiving a call that a man had been stabbed. Upon arrival, the officers located Mr. Wareham suffering from a stab wound. He was rushed to hospital where he passed away.
Homicide investigators arrested Rodrigues without incident at 9:30 a.m. yesterday at an address in the 0-100 block of Walter Havill Drive in Halifax. He is scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court today to face charges of second degree murder and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. This was not a random incident as the accused and the victim were known to one another.
Investigators have worked diligently on this file for the past four years and are hopeful that the charges laid today will bring some measure of solace to the family and friends of Mr. Wareham.
