Const. Steve Elms told Global News the accused and the victim were “known to each other.”

Investigators are also looking for a 2013 four-door black Hyundai Elantra which was allegedly driven by Kershaw prior to his arrest.

Kershaw allegedly tried to change a tire and eventually drove it into a ditch.
