4th suspect arrested in Good Samaritan murder

Peel police have charged a fourth suspect in the murder of a Good Samaritan in Brampton one year ago.

Officers say victim Kearn Nedd, 28, was shot and killed while trying to stop an armed robbery at a poker tournament at Rozz Banquet Hall — near Dixie Road and Highway 407 — on the afternoon of April 16, 2011.

The fourth suspect, Brian “Spanish” Funes, was in a Brampton court on an unrelated matter when he was charged and made his first court appearance in connection with Nedd’s death.

Funes, 25, has been charged with accessory after the fact to murder and conspiracy to commit robbery.

Last month, police arrested Kmar Kelly, a 21-year-old from Toronto, and charged him with second-degree murder.

And in January, they charged another suspect with second-degree murder — a 15-year-old who can’t be identified because of age —days after they arrested a 30-year-old man named Samir Abdelgadir for accessory after the fact to murder.

Police said they are looking for more suspects.
