On April 29, 2017, police arrived at a house in the 700 block of Garnet Street and found 51-year-old Daniel Richard Dipaolo dead.
Brass was charged in connection to two murders in Winnipeg earlier this year, Mitchell was charged in connection to one.

On March 14, emergency crews rushed to a house fire in the 400 block of Aberdeen Avenue in Winnipeg. Jeanenne Fontaine, 29, was found inside and rushed to hospital where she later died. It was discovered that she had been shot in the head before she was exposed to the fire. Brass was charged with manslaughter in this case and Mitchell was charged with second degree murder.
A third man, Jason Michael Meilleur, 38, was also charged with manslaughter in connection to that murder.
Police don’t believe any of the murders were connected.
