KENTVILLE - The two men accused in connection with the death of a homeless man in Nova Scotia last year are due in court Monday.

The suspects, 26-year-old Daniel Wayne Surette of Berwick and 25-year-old Kyle David James Fredericks of nearby Berwick District, were charged on Friday with first-degree murder.

They’re set to make their first court appearance in Kentville on Monday to face the allegations against them.

The body of Harley Lawrence was found in a burned out bus shelter in Berwick on Oct. 23.

Police have released few details about Lawrence’s death such as the cause of death.

Local residents said Lawrence began using the shelter for refuge as temperatures dipped last fall.

His death shook residents in the tiny community.
