The death of an 81-year-old man at a Halifax continuing care facility is being treated as a homicide.
Halifax Police say the un-named man, died Sept 21 in the evening. The 71-year-old man who pushed the elderly victim, causing him to fall, and later die from his injury will not be charged because he has a cognitive impairment.
William Michael Sandeson has been charged with first-degree murder in Taylor Samson’s death.
Samson was lat seen on August 15 and hasn’t been heard from since. Police are continuing search efforts in hopes of finding Samson’s body. They also believe the alleged murder was not a random act as the accused and victim were known to each other.
