LITTLE CURRENT, Ont. - A 26-year-old man is facing a murder charge in connection with a fatal assault on an elder in a Manitoulin Island First Nation.

Provincial police say 70-year-old John Panamick - an elder with the M'Chigeeng First Nation - was assaulted inside his residence on May 11 between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Panamick was discovered later that night by a neighbour who contacted paramedics.

He was transported to hospital, where he died of his injuries on June 13.

Police say an investigation has deemed the incident to be a homicide and a suspect was arrested on Thursday.

Kimel Corbiere of the Township of Central Manitoulin is charged with one count of first-degree murder. -CP-
