Slayer of ex-girlfriend found dead
Apparent suicide in Quebec hotel
Free on $1,500 bail when couple shot
By Betsy POWELL and Richard BRENNAN, Staff Reporters
The ex-boyfriend of a woman he stalked, terrorized and last Friday night shot to death appears to have killed himself in a Quebec hotel room.
John KOVACS, 52, was free on bail -- on charges of criminal harassment and threatening death -- when he ambushed Szilvia VERES, 35, and wounded her husband Miklos KEMENCZY, 46, in an underground apartment parking garage in North York.
The scenario is all too common -- and yet avoidable, says Pamela CROSS, who expressed frustration about the process that's supposed to keep stalkers away from their victims.
"This woman had moved on and was seeking the protection of the criminal system and she failed to get it," said CROSS, legal director of Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children.
The minister responsible for women's issues in the Ontario government pointed to a pilot program aimed at making better assessments of risk in such cases. But critics say there's no reason to delay bringing in tougher bail rules for men charged with stalking and harassment.
Court documents show KOVACS was released on $1,500 bail after appearing in a Finch Ave. W. courtroom last November. Police had charged him with three counts of criminal harassment and one count of uttering a death threat stemming from three incidents last year.
Police believe KOVACS had a short-term relationship with VERES. They broke up last March and VERES married KEMENCZY in November.
The court records indicate the couple complained after he watched a house near Steeles Ave. and Bathurst St. last August 29. On another occasion, KOVACS followed VERES "from place to place" and on October 23, he threatened to kill KEMENCZY.
It's unclear when he was first charged, but he was released on bail on condition he stay more than 200 metres from any place where VERES or KEMENCZY "live, work, attend school or happen to be as known to you." He was also ordered not to use or possess a cellphone. There was no condition to seek counselling.
His surety, according to court documents, was Nicolaus SZILY, believed to be an old friend of KOVACS, who worked as a machinist for an aircraft company. KOVACS was supposed to be living at SZILY's home in the city's west end.
SZILY could not be reached for comment last night.
Between his arrest and last Friday's shooting, KOVACS made several court appearances. His next court date was tomorrow.
The tragic turn of events underscores the ineffectiveness of bail conditions and the need for courts to take a long hard look at an alleged stalker's capacity for violence, said CROSS.
"I really don't understand what it's going to take to get the criminal system to understand that these are men who by nature of the charge of criminal harassment are at extremely high risk of re-offending," she said yesterday.
"We have advocated for some years... that the bail system in Ontario be overhauled and there should be a requirement, not just that a risk assessment be completed by the police, but that that risk assessment be presented by the Crown in the bail hearings."
If the judge or justice of the peace doesn't follow the recommendation, he or she would have to provide reasons why not, she continued.
Social Services Minister Sandra PUPATELLO, responsible for women's issues, said government, agencies and police have to keep trying to protect women from men -- usually spouses or former lovers who want to hurt them.
PUPATELLO admitted that restraining orders and police charges will not stop a "crazy person from doing a crazy thing, but to the extent we can change that, we have to,"
In December, the Liberal government released a domestic violence action plan calling for a consistent police response to things like restraining orders and an assessment tool for police to determine risk of continued violence.
"In the past January, we started the pilot project in Ottawa and North Bay in both English and French for an assessment tool that actually determines the risk of flight, risk of violence," PUPATELLO said.
"My fear is that there are people who come in (to the system) and they are back out... (and the question is) should they be back out and we are not going to know the answer to that until we implement this kind of review."
New Democratic Party member of provincial parliament Marilyn CHURLEY (Toronto-Danforth) pointed to past inquests into the deaths of women killed by spouses and ex-lovers and asked how many more woman have to die before government follows through.
"The recommendations are there and they are just not being followed up on, and I was just stricken when I heard about this latest death," CHURLEY said.
"There are huge problems with underenforcement of restraining orders," she added.
After witnesses: reported KOVACS had fled the scene in his silver Honda, police issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder.
Around 4 p.m. Monday, workers at a hotel in Rivière-du-Loup, about 200 kilometres northeast of Quebec City, discovered KOVACS dead of a single gunshot wound. He was identified through fingerprints.
A firearm was recovered at the scene, but police don't yet know if it was the one used to shoot the couple.
Toronto police have not been able to locate KOVACS' next of kin and they are asking the public for help. They believe he is originally from eastern Europe. Police also had difficulty tracking down VERES's relatives, but they have notified her mother, who lives in Hungary, homicide Detective Terry BROWNE said yesterday.
KEMENCZY is recovering in hospital after undergoing emergency surgery. The investigation is continuing.
