BRANTFORD — Police say the couple accused in the murder of a Brantford man have been arrested.
Rorey Grant Tyler Hill and Jessica Elizabeth Poreba were arrested Tuesday evening without incident.
The pair are accused of first degree murder in the death of 68 year old George Russell Hitchon.
On July 22, police responded to a death investigation at a multiple unit building on Colborne Street near Drummond Street. A 68 year old male victim, now identified as Hitchon, was located deceased. On July 25, police issued warrants for Poreba and Hill for first degree murder and said the victim and the accused were known each other.
Officials did not identify the manner of death in the case.
According to the pair’s social media accounts they are romantically connected. Hill lists himself as the owner of Green Dreams, an illegal cannabis dispensary on Chiefswood Road that was shut down by Six Nations Police in 2019. Two men were charged in that incident. No listing of Hill being charged in connection to that dispensary was made public at that time.
