Man charged with murder

Homicide investigators in Surrey have laid charges in the recent death of a man.

Sgt. Bari Imam says 42-year-old Dustin Anderson of Nanaimo was arrested in that Vancouver Island city.

Anderson is accused of one count of second degree murder.

He is expected to appear in provincial court in Surrey on Tuesday.

Thirty-three-year-old Shaunce Poirier was found critically injured outside a Surrey apartment complex on June 16 and died a short time later. He was known to police.

At the time, police said the attack was not random, but investigators have never released a motive or said how Poirier was killed.
