Arrest Made in Two Durham Murders

Khristian Ottley was the first murder in the Durham region last year. January 14 2008, Khristian was found shot to death in his car off of a dirt road in Pickering. Police have no idea why Khristian lost his life and continued to look for answers.

Within a couple of days another young man's life was also taken in the peel region, his name was Jeffrey Warne. Jeffrey Warne, 19, was found dead on Hollyhedge Drive in Pickering on Jan 27, 2008. A second man was also found with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. Jeffrey decided to start selling drugs and unfortunately boasted about his new found wealth which most likely led to his death as it looks as if he was being robbed.

Police wondered if both cases were connected and in some way they were. Both murders took place different days and in different locations. Two young men have now been charged in both murders. Damion Dicketta Pearson, 21, of no fixed address, was charged with one count of second degree murder and one count of attempted murder. Jerome Campbell, 20, of no fixed address is charged with second degree murder. He also faces one count of attempted murder for the shooting of another man at the same residence.
