March 31, 2020 - 10:02 AM

KAMLOOPS, B.C. - One count of murder and three counts of attempted murder have been laid against a British Columbia man following a violent house party in Kamloops, B.C.

Court documents show 44-year-old Michael Palmer had his first court date March 29, just hours after a man was killed and three others were injured in a stabbing Saturday night.

Two of the victims, aged 62 and 58, were critically hurt, while a 21-year-old suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

A 59-year-old man died at the scene.

RCMP say all those involved knew each other.

Palmer remains in custody and is expected to appear in provincial court in Kelowna on April 6. (CHNL)
