OPP say they have new information to share in the triple homicide investigation in to the deaths of Melissa Miller, Alan Porter and Micheal Jamieson.

CTV News is reporting that two men appeared in Brantford Court today facing a number of murder charges; Nicholas Shipman and Thomas Bomberry.

OPP have not confirmed if the two men who appeared in court today are connected to the triple homicide.

Shipman was previously one of the persons charged in the death of Douglas Hill.

Hill and Miller were previously common-law partners.

On November 4, 2018, OPP discovered three bodies near a stolen 2006 grey Chevy Silverado pick up truck just outside Oneida Nation of the Thames on Bodkin Road.

Police identified the victims as Melissa Trudy Miller, 37; Alan Grant Porter, 33; and Michael Shane Jamieson, 32, all of Six Nations of the Grand River.

Little details were released to the public about the cause of death and it is unknown if the victims were killed at the location where they were discovered. Post mortem investigators confirmed the cause of death in all three victims to be homicide. Police also confirmed that Miller was seven months pregnant at the time of her death.

On November 23, 2018 a woman from Six Nations, Kirsten Bomberry, 36; was arrested and charged with three counts of Accessory After the Fact to Murder.

She was held for a show cause hearing on November 24, 2018, where she was remanded into custody. A publication ban is now in effect in that case.

OPP previously reported Shipman was arrested and taken into custody connected to a vehicle theft at a Middleport Road address on November 3, 2018.

Shipman appeared in court in Brantford to face motor vehicle theft charges following that arrest as well as charges for failing to follow probation orders and driving while suspended.

OPP have not confirmed if Shipman remained in custody since that arrest or if he was released following that court appearance.
