One woman has died after a single car crash in the Halifax area. RCMP say the vehicle went off the road on Prospect Bay Road and Seligs Road around 11AM yesterday. The 71 year old woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
A man has been accused of first-degree murder in the death of Matthew Sudds. 32 year old Ricardo Jerrel Whynder was arrested last Friday without incident in Surrey, B.C. He is expected back in Halifax to face charges.
The former Halifax taxi driver acquitted of sexual assault this month no longer has a licence to drive a cab in the city. Bassam Al-Rawi has had a conditional licence since September 2015. City spokesperson Brendan Elliott says that Al-Rawi’s licence expired last Friday.
