Belleville police have made two additional arrests in relation to an ongoing investigation into a homicide that occurred last fall.

In a Friday, June 21 media release, police say that on Monday of the same week, members of the Criminal Investigations Division arrested a 47-year-old Belleville man for his alleged role in the incident, which occurred at a North Front Street address on September 18. Police also arrested a 21-year-old Scarborough woman on Wednesday for her alleged involvement.

Robert Holgate, 47, of Belleville, and Elisha Linscott-Wiltshire, 21, of Scarborough, were both arrested and charged with first degree murder and conspiring to commit murder. Charges have not been proven in court.

Last month, police arrested another suspect in the same case, 22-year-old Marlon McDonald.

Both Holgate and Linscott-Wiltshire were both held for a bail hearing.

Anyone with any information related to the homicide are asked to contact Detective Constable Rachel Sweet at 613-966-0882 x 4177 or rsweet@bellevilleps.ca.
