Two men have been convicted of manslaughter in the death of a 24-year-old man south of Ottawa.
The body of Joey Faubert, 24, was found on the property of École élémentaire catholique Saint-Isidore on June 30, 2012.
Less than one week later, Cody Henry, 19, of Ottawa, and Nico Soublière, 20, of Greely, were charged with one count each of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.
On Friday, the men were found guilty of a lesser charge of manslaughter after the Crown and defence agreed to the verdict. A publication ban was put on the circumstances of Faubert’s death.
The men will return to court on Feb. 19, 2014 for the start of sentencing.
A third man, 18-year-old Martin Lamoureux of St. Isidore, Ont., was charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.
He will appear in court at a later date for his verdict. Three others were also charged in July 2012 connected to Faubert’s death.
The cause of death was never released.
