Investigators in the Homicide Unit of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division have charged two additional people in the homicide of Catherine ‘Catie’ Miller.
On November 26 at approximately 7:30 a.m, investigators arrested a woman at a Lawrencetown address and a man at an address in Sheet Harbour Passage. They were interviewed at Police Headquarters on Wednesday throughout the day and evening and now both face charges.
Thirty-three-year-old (not 30 as previously stated) Kelly Amanda MacDonald of Lawrencetown faces charges of first degree murder and indecently interfering with a dead human body. Thirty-year-old George Edward Hubley of Sheet Harbour Passage faces charges of accessory to murder after the fact and indecently interfering with a dead human body. They will both appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court this morning. These charges are in addition to those laid against 29-year-old Jason James Johnson earlier this week. MacDonald and Hubley are both known to Johnson and were not known to Catie Miller. Johnson and Catie Miller were known to one another.
Police are continuing to hold four scenes at this time as they search for potential evidence related to the investigation. Two scenes are in Lawrencetown, one is in the Sheet Harbour Passage (not Port Dufferin as previously stated) and the other is in Goffs. Human remains were located late yesterday afternoon at one of the four locations, however, it has yet to be determined if they are the remains of murder victim Catie Miller and we anticipate that this process will take some time. The location of the discovery of the remains will not be released at this time to protect the on-going investigation.
We cannot begin to imagine how difficult this week’s developments, coupled with all the information in the media, must be for Catie Miller’s family and friends. We extend our sincere sympathies to them.
