A Nanaimo man has been charged with manslaughter in the death of Shaun Alexander McGregor, who was found dead in his Victoria apartment last year.

On April 9, 2015, Victoria police responded to an apartment in the 1500 block of Begbie Street, where McGregor was found and later pronounced dead at the scene.

Last Friday, the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit and Nanaimo RCMP took Colin Lamontagne, 40, into custody. A woman, who was also arrested at the time, has been released without charge.

Lamontagne’s arrest and charges come one year after investigators initially announced McGregory’s death was a homicide.
