Jeyarasan Manikaraja, 40, is dead and a 34-year-old is in custody after a stabbing near 7745 Mountain Sights, just north of Pare in Cote des Neiges at 9:30 p.m. Monday evening.

Manikaraja and the suspect are members of the local Sri Lankan community. According to the victim’s brother, the two were from the same village in Sri Lanka. Continue reading
