Two men accused in the gang slayings of six people in a Surrey, B.C., apartment have been found guilty of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in connection with the deaths.

B.C. Supreme Court Judge Catherine Wedge says Cody Haevischer and Matthew Johnston played key roles in the execution-style killings of defenceless victims...

On Oct. 19, 2007, Haevischer, Johnston and an associate who can only be identified as Person X entered the suite of Corey Lal.

The trial heard they’d been sent there by their gang leadership to kill a rival drug dealer. Lal’s brother, Michael, and associates Eddie Narong and Ryan Bartolomeo were caught in the crossfire.

Ed Schellenberg, a 55-year-old father of two, was in the building to service fireplaces and Chris Mohan, a 22-year-old student who lived next door with his mother, were also killed in the suite by the assassins.
