THUNDER BAY - A woman first charged with second-degree murder in relation to a 2017 double homicide has pleaded guilty to two counts of assault.
A pre-trial was held for 21-year-old, Kailee Loon, on Jan. 3 where she entered a plea of guilty to assault in connection to the death of 50-year-old Robert Lloyd Grey. Loon also pleaded guilty to assault in connection to the death of 22-year-old Kory Lee Campbell.
The incident took place on July 2, 2017 at a Carl Avenue residence. Police were called to the home and the bodies of Gray and Campbell were discovered.
Garnet Loon and Kailee Loon, then 19-years-old, were arrested in Sioux Lookout on July 3 and transported back to Thunder Bay.
Kailee Loon was initially charged with second-degree murder in connection to Gray's death and assault in connection to the death of Campbell, as well as a charge of breaching a probation order.
Garnet Loon was initially charged with two counts of second-degree murder in connection to both Gray and Campbell’s death.
A preliminary hearing was held for Garnet Loon in December and a judge determined there was enough evidence to proceed to trial. Garnet Loon is facing a second-degree murder charge in connection to the death of Gray, while the Crown sought a committal on the charge of manslaughter in connection to the death of Campbell.
A sentencing hearing for Kailee Loon is scheduled to take place on Feb. 4.
