Homicide investigators have announced second-degree murder charges in the death of a man at a Langley, B.C., hotel this spring.
Cody Mostat, 30, was found unconscious at the Highway Hotel shortly before 9 p.m. on March 25. Police and paramedics responded, but were unable to revive him.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said Thursday that after a six-month investigation, Justin Bos has been identified as the alleged killer.
Bos was arrested on Wednesday, and prosecutors have since approved charges.
Police did not say whether the death was believed to be linked to the ongoing regional gang conflict, but noted the investigation involved collaboration with the gang-focused provincial Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit.
Police said they would not comment further while the matter was before the courts.
