Campbell River father charged with first degree murder

Next court appearance scheduled for Aug. 8

Brent Allen Warren, 43, of Campbell River appeared in Provincial Court on a single count of first degree murder today.

This charge has been laid as a result of the death of Warren’s seven-year-old son, said Sgt Craig Massey of the Campbell River RCMP.  The accused has been remanded in custody with his next court appearance being scheduled for Aug. 8.  The court has ordered a publication ban on today’s hearing.

Meanwhile, Massey said forensic investigators continue to examine the Warren home on Alder Street.

Campbell River RCMP were called out to assist ambulance attendants at the residence on Alder Street at 2:30 a.m. on July 27.

On arrival, officers determined that the boy was suffering from serious injuries. He was then transported to hospital via ambulance where he succumbed to his injuries.

Massey said the Campbell River RCMP cannot provide details on what the boy’s injuries were at this time.

“The investigation is ongoing,” said Massey. “We’re in the early stages.”
