Curtis Murray, 25, was arrested on March 30, at approximately 5:45 p.m., by Provincial Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement (ROPE) officers in Mississauga. His brother, Corey Murray, 29, was arrested on April 3, also by ROPE officers in Mississauga. Both are charged with First Degree Murder.

“We have reasonable grounds to believe they committed this murder,” said Homicide Detective Tam Bui. “Trevor was a recent immigrant from St. Lucia, His only mistake was walking from one friend’s building to another.”

Seraphine was shot around 2 a.m. at 44 Willowridge Road on March 21 after an altercation with two men.

Bui had warned acquaintances not to assist in harbouring the two men after charging a woman, Samelia Dania Wiltshire, 24, of Mississauga, with Accessory After the Fact to Murder.

He also is appealing to the public to return property sold at a block sale at 44 Willowridge Road on March 20. According to Bui, the property at the sale is evidence in Seraphine’s murder. 

“I am appealing to community members who unknowingly purchased any of these items to please return them to  23 Division  (5230 Finch Ave. W.)” 

Bui is assuring community members that they will not face any criminal charges or get into trouble for returning the items. 

“You will only be assisting Trevor’s family,” said the detective.
