2nd man charged in death of 96-year-old Niels 'Arne' Nielsen
RCMP have charged a second man with first-degree murder in the death of 96-year-old Niels "Arne" Nielsen of MacGregor, Man.
A 54-year-old MacGregor man was charged on Wednesday and will appear in court in Winnipeg.
In June, a 21-year-old man was also charged with first-degree murder.
Officers found the body of Nielsen inside his house in the small town, located west of Portage la Prairie, on May 25.
Police initially called the case a suspicious death but on May 28, after getting the results from an autopsy, declared it was a homicide.
