A man who allegedly stabbed the elderly rector of a church in Canada during a televised Mass as shocked parishioners watched will appear in court Saturday.
The attack happened as the priest of St. Joseph’s Oratory at Mount Royal led Mass on Friday morning at the church in Montreal, Quebec, police said.
The suspect’s name was not immediately released. He is expected to appear by video feed Saturday afternoon at the Quebec Court Criminal Room. If any charges are filed, they will be determined by prosecutors, Constable Caroline Chevrefils said.
