Stabbings kill woman, 62, injure daughter
Neighbours watch in horror through patio door as woman attacked
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
A Toronto family that spans five generations has to find a way to go on without their "Nana" after she was stabbed to death in an incident that also left her daughter critically injured.
The man who attacked them was shot dead minutes later by Toronto police.
Just before that, a teenage girl described by family members as the dead woman's granddaughter escaped death when a group of neighbours fought off the attacker's attempt to drag her back inside a townhouse at 1898 Sheppard Ave. W. near Jane St.
Pandora WHITE/WHYTE, 62, was killed late Friday in her home by her adoptive brother, Ucal LAUZON, 34, family members and neighbours said as they gathered outside the home yesterday.
"We lost the major link to a chain, the major source to a family that stays together," said Kathleen MILLINGTON, a family member who spoke to the Star outside the neat townhouse where WHITE/WHYTE lived with her granddaughter, Rochelle.
Horrified neighbours watched shortly after 10: 30 p.m. Friday as the man they identified as Lauzon, described by family members as an adoptive brother, stabbed WHITE/WHYTE's daughter Marcia ALLYNE, 37, just metres away on the other side of a glass sliding door.
A neighbour who wanted to be identified only as Kevin said he couldn't see a knife, but Lauzon struck Allyne repeatedly with an object.
"(Allyne) fought (back)," Kevin said. "I really respected that."
Minutes later, Lauzon was shot dead by police officers who arrived on the scene, neighbours said. He was pronounced dead at Sunnybrook hospital early yesterday.
Neighbours in the townhouse complex said they heard officers shout to Lauzon to drop his weapon several times before he was shot.
The provincial Special Investigations Unit, which probes civilian deaths involving police, is taking over the investigation.
A press release from the Special Investigations Unit said police officers arrived at approximately 11: 02 p.m. and found Allyne lying outside the house with "serious stab wounds."
"A Toronto Police Service officer was involved in a confrontation with a 34-year-old man, resulting in shots being fired."
Allyne is in critical condition at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre.
MILLINGTON told reporters WHITE/WHYTE was a "law-abiding citizen" and said the incident had nothing to do with drugs or any other kind of crime. "... I want that stated," she said.
Neighbours said Rochelle was in the house when the violence started and tried twice to get out.
The first time Lauzon dragged her back inside in front of horrified onlookers.
When she escaped a second time, she was taken inside the home of neighbour Zolikha WARDAK, whose family phoned 911.
"She was (covered) in so much blood, I thought she was hurt, too," WARDAK said.
Rochelle told her she had been in her bedroom when she heard an argument downstairs, WARDAK said.
The teen said she ran down to find WHITE/WHYTE on the couch, covered in blood.
Rochelle told WARDAK she had blood on her because she ran to WHITE/WHYTE and hugged her.
The teen told WARDAK that Lauzon was there and she tried to get away from him.
A neighbour who asked not to be identified said he was in his yard when he heard Rochelle screaming.
"I saw her come out," he said. "She came to us... She was trying to slide behind us."
He said Lauzon came out after her. "She started running. He was trying to grab her."
Rochelle tripped and fell, he said, and Lauzon dragged her inside.
"Moments later, she ran out again. So this time, we defended her."
He said that about half a dozen men from the neighbourhood formed a barrier between Lauzon and Rochelle.
Lauzon gave up and went back into the house, he said. Some of the men ran to WHITE/WHYTE's door and tried unsuccessfully to get inside.
WHITE/WHYTE was a registered nurse who worked with senior citizens, said Annette WALTERS- MILLINGTON, one of her three daughters.
WHITE/WHYTE also leaves her mother, 77, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
WHITE/WHYTE had lived in the community for more than 20 years and was loved by everyone, said a distraught Annette WALTERS- MILLINGTON, WHITE/WHYTE's daughter.
"Anybody that knows her calls her Nana...," Kevin said. "That's what we called her, out of respect."

Friends mourn slain teenager
By Scott ROBERTS and Ashley JOANNOU, Staff Reporters
Six roses, a red bandana and a copy of the New Testament lay on a sidewalk behind an Etobicoke apartment complex last night a memorial for 17-year-old Matthew George WILMOT.
A gym beside the apartment where the teen played basketball was used as a canvas for one last message from WILMOT's Friends: "R.I.P. DIzzy."
WILMOT, known to his Friends as DIzzy, was gunned down Wednesday afternoon outside the entrance of an apartment on Islington Ave. just south of Finch Ave. W., at about 2 p.m.
His death was one of three shootings this week; Toronto police have made an arrest in the shooting of a 12-year-old boy and are still searching for suspects in the other attacks.
WILMOT died after being taken to Sunnybrook hospital; an autopsy yesterday revealed the cause to be gunshot wounds to the chest.
The afternoon shooting took place just steps away from a playground where children looked on.
witnesses: reported seeing a black sport utility vehicle, possibly a Lincoln Navigator or a Ford Explorer, speeding away after the shooting. No arrests have been made.
Friends of WILMOT described him as quiet and athletic. They were shocked he would be the target of an attack that police described as brazen.
"He was just a good guy," said Shawn CETTINO, a close friend. "He was a smart kid, too. He would never disrespect anyone."
WILMOT was known to police but officers wouldn't elaborate.
Meanwhhile, Bernard BOACHIE, 18, of Toronto faces eight charges, including attempted murder and aggravated assault, in the shooting of a 12-year-old boy on Monday.
Police believe BOACHIE knew the boy.
The victim was taken to the Hospital for Sick Children by cab after being shot in the shoulder in an apartment building on Tobermory Dr., near Jane and Finch Aves.
Two days later, WILMOT became the city's 31st homicide victim of the year.
Police are also appealing for witnesses: to a second shooting Wednesday, just west of Spadina Ave. between Dundas and Queen Sts.
Kortez JACKSON, a father of four, was shot three times when he opened the door to a townhouse in Atkinson Co-op at about 11 a.m. JACKSON, 32, is in critical condition in hospital.
In another case, police arrested a man in Ottawa yesterday, alleging he had broken the conditions of his release from jail.
Bhupinder Singh SAHOTA, 45, was on conditional release from the Toronto East Detention Centre after being charged with possession of stolen credit cards. He is being brought to Toronto by Ottawa police and will face a variety of charges.
