The investigation commenced Aug. 5, 2013 after an African rock python asphyxiated the boys.

Jean-Claude Savoie, the owner of Reptile Ocean pet store, situated below the apartment where the boys had been killed, has not been charged in relation to their deaths but was a subject of a criminal investigation.

The store was an unlicensed zoo and pet store, according to the Department of Natural Resources.

CBC News is seeking comment from the Crown and Savoie's lawyer.
