Regina police say a man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for murder in the death of Daniel DiPaolo has been arrested in Winnipeg.
Johnathen Edward Kakewash, 31, of Winnipeg was set to make his first court appearance in Regina on a charge of first-degree murder Friday afternoon.
DiPaolo, 51, was found dead inside a house in the 700 block of Garnet Street on April 29. He is Regina’s first homicide victim of 2017.
In June, police obtained a warrant for the arrest of Kakewash in connection with the murder. However, Kakewash was not located and arrested until Aug. 4, when he was arrested on weapon-related charges in Winnipeg.
Once the charges in Winnipeg were dealt with, Kakewash was arrested and charged in the death of DiPaolo, Regina police said in a news release.
Three other men are charged with first-degree murder in the case – Edward Genaille, 51, of Regina and Christopher Matthew Brass, 34, and Malcolm Mitchell, 25, both of no fixed address.
