However, the charges against the suspect involve another victim, a woman who is also believed to be involved in the case.

After his release, the 44-year-old man went to his partner's house on Gillespie Street, Sherbrooke.

The deceased was said to have been involved in an altercation with the suspect around 5 a.m. when he showed up at his daughter-in-law's apartment in response to her call.

According to the Sûreté du Québec, the murder investigation is still ongoing.

Steeve Gilbert is currently in custody and will appear back in court on Tuesday, January 30th.
