Williams faces additional charges

Former CFB Trenton commander linked to 82 more crimes around Ottawa, Belleville and Tweed

Russell Williams, the disgraced colonel accused of murdering two Ontario women and sexually assaulting two others, will now face 82 additional charges. They include 61 counts of breaking and entering and theft, 11 counts of attempted breaking and entering and 10 counts of breaking and entering with intent to commit an indictable offence. The charges stem from a review of unsolved crimes around southern Ontario in areas where Williams lived and are all of the offences police have linked to the Colonel so far. Williams make an appearance by video link in a Belleville court on Thursday.
