Killed 'over nothing'
Single father, 40, dies of gunshot wounds in a Saint Thomas pub
Saint Thomas -- One minute yesterday morning, Robert THORPE Jr. was sitting in a downtown bar here with an acquaintance.
The next, he was dead of gunshot wounds and the man suspected in his shooting was himself shot by police.
"It (the shooting) was over nothing," a grieving Carol THORPE said of the fatal shooting of her 40-year-old son, Robert, in the Manx Arms Restaurant and Pub on Talbot Street, a lunchtime hangout for the city's downtown business crowd.
Carol THORPE said her son, a single dad who lived for his nine-year-old daughter, Hailey, was shot "six or seven times."
THORPE's shooting was the first homicide in Saint Thomas in 13 years.
Saint Thomas police said yesterday THORPE was shot just before 1 a.m. He was taken to hospital, where he died.
A man police say is a suspect, Nelson MERRIT, 33, of 348 Wellington Street, was shot and wounded minutes later by two Saint Thomas police officers in a nearby parking lot. The province's Special Investigations Unit is investigating MERRIT's shooting, while Saint Thomas police are in charge of the homicide probe.
Rose BLISS of Special Investigations Unit said two officers fired at MERRIT, who was taken to hospital in London with non-life- threatening injuries.
He has not been charged.
BLISS said last night MERRIT would be turned over to Saint Thomas police when released from hospital. BLISS would not say how many shots were fired by police or if the suspect exchanged gunfire with the officers. She also would not say if a weapon was found.
THORPE was described by his mother as a "brilliant kid."
Carol THORPE said her son was a tool-and-die maker at the Timken plant in Saint Thomas, where he had worked for more than 20 years. She said he also had a boat in Port Stanley and loved fishing with his daughter. She said her son was divorced and had custody of his daughter, who now is staying with her other grandparents.
"He spent many, many hours with his daughter," Carol THORPE said. "He was her world and she was his life. He did so many things with her. He built her a go-kart. You name it and she had it."
THORPE said her son was a handyman and had gutted and fixed up old homes in Saint Thomas, one of which he lived in.
Crime tape surrounded the front and back entrances of the Manx Arms yesterday.
Saint Thomas residents interviewed yesterday didn't know there had been a shooting.
"I didn't have a clue what happened," said a woman who lives in a rear apartment unit above the bar. "I didn't hear a thing when I was asleep."
Donny BURT, another apartment dweller, said he was up until 3 a.m., but didn't hear anything.
He called THORPE's shooting isolated, saying people don't usually pull out guns in Saint Thomas.
The operator of a nearby business said the shootings underscore the dangers of bar life -- even in Saint Thomas.
"I tell my son all the time you never know what will happen in a bar. I tell him to keep his mouth shut because somebody always wants to fight."
Saint Thomas police Const. Glenn HODGSON said police were called to the Manx Arms at 12: 50 a.m. but wouldn't say what happened in the bar before the shooting.
He said police couldn't comment further because they're prohibited from discussing cases in which the Special Investigations Unit is involved.
The bar's management could not be reached for comment.
The Special Investigations Unit, a civilian agency, investigates circumstances involving police and civilians that have resulted in serious injury, sexual assault or death.
BLISS said seven investigators have been assigned to yesterday's shooting.
The last homicide in Saint Thomas involved a husband and wife. Soodarsan BAJRANGIE- SINGH, then 62, was convicted in 1996 of the second-degree murder of his wife, Madeen SINGH, then 58. She was shot 13 times in the backyard of their Centre Street home. SINGH was sentenced to life in prison.
Saint Thomas police were last involved in a shooting in 1985, when two city police officers shot Gary STEVENSON, 36, in his backyard on Churchill Street after he pointed a gun at them.

This Was Johnathon
In November 2003, Johnathon was beaten, thrown down the basement stairs in his Toronto home and stabbed 71 times -- his throat slashed. Yesterday, his mother sobbed as her only remaining child was handed a life sentence for the murder. Another teen, nicknamed Vampire Boy, was also sentenced as an adult for manslaughter
By Timothy APPLEBY, Armina LIGAYA and Hayley MICK, Page A12
Toronto -- For close to three years he was the 12-year-old Toronto boy with no face and only one name, cut and stabbed so ferociously that he drowned in his own blood.
He was simply "Johnathan," his identity shielded because one of the three teenagers accused of slaughtering him was his older brother, 16 at the time. Identifying the brother would have contravened provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act and so "Johnathan," much to the chagrin of his mother, was robbed not just of his life, but also of his identity.
But as sentence was passed yesterday on two of the three accused (the third was acquitted of all charges in February), a Superior Court judge ruled that the horrendous circumstances demanded the killers be dealt with as adults. And so, finally, the veil was lifted and Johnathon Robert MADDEN of Dawes Road, in Toronto's east Danforth area, can be named and seen, as his mother had asked the court.
Likewise unveiled are the two killers, Kevin MADDEN, a hulking, stone-faced figure, now almost 20, and his friend, Timothy FERRIMAN, nicknamed Vampire Boy for his professed fondness for sipping blood.
"The facts are horrific," Mr. Justice David McCOMBS concluded, outlining what he described as "a hideous, senseless crime."
Mr. MADDEN was found guilty of first-degree murder in February and yesterday was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing his little brother in the family home, cutting and slicing his face and neck 71 times with a butcher knife, severing both his voice box and his carotid artery.
Mr. MADDEN was also convicted of trying to murder his stepfather, Ralston CHAMPAGNIE, who was attacked with a knife and a baseball bat when he returned home that same afternoon in November of 2003. For that, he received a concurrent 10-year prison term, less three years spent in pretrial custody.
Two years of his life sentence will be served in a youth facility and the balance in a federal penitentiary, Judge McCOMBS ruled. Behind bars since the day after Johnathon was slain, he will be eligible to apply for parole in just over seven years.
Like all lifers, Mr. MADDEN will be under supervision for the rest of his days, if, or when, he goes free. He is not necessarily beyond all hope, the judge said.
In keeping with his icy demeanour throughout the trial, Mr. MADDEN showed not a shred of emotion yesterday. Mr. FERRIMAN, now 18 and convicted of manslaughter for his role in Johnathon's death, was slightly more animated, glancing around at the packed courtroom where his father, Timothy, sat.
Unlike Mr. MADDEN, Mr. FERRIMAN addressed the court during the sentencing hearing, apologizing for what he had done. The judge said yesterday he found the remorse of the "deeply disturbed" young man to be credible.
Mr. FERRIMAN did not stab the boy but he handed Mr. MADDEN the murder weapon and he helped move Johnathon's body.
On top of time served, Mr. FERRIMAN must spend two years less a day in the youth prison system -- in which he is said to have made significant rehabilitative progress -- followed by three years probation.
The judge's comments during the trial were laced with sympathy for the MADDEN family's ordeal of having one son murder another.
But for both prosecution and defence, the case was unusually taxing.
The first trial was aborted midway through jury deliberations after postings on a vampire-related Internet site -- the same one patronized by Montreal's Dawson College killer -- cast doubt on the veracity of a teenaged girl who was the Crown's key witness.
Fourteen years old at the time, the girl had tape-recorded a telephone call in which the two killers had bragged of plans to wipe out Mr. MADDEN's family, beginning with Johnathon. Less than an hour later, with the house vandalized and smashed up, Johnathon's 45-kilogram (100-pound) body was stuffed in a basement crawl space as the three accused awaited Mr. CHAMPAGNIE's return.
All were arrested within 24 hours.
Mr. MADDEN never disputed killing his brother, who "adored" him, their mother, Joanne CHAMPAGNIE, said in a heart-wrenching victim-impact statement.
Missing throughout the trial, however, was any persuasive insight into how Mr. MADDEN's rage boiled to such a peak that he wanted to annihilate his family.
After the verdicts, emotions were mixed.
Lead prosecutor Hank GOODY, who argued strenuously for adult sentences, declined comment.
But Mr. MADDEN's lawyer, Robert NUTTALL, who sought to have his client sentenced as a youth, said he would appeal the ruling.
"I'm disappointed for Kevin, everybody agrees that Kevin is a very troubled fellow," he said. "Kevin desperately needs treatment. And unfortunately, he's not going to get it."
He described Mr. MADDEN as a "deeply disturbed young man" -- not the psychopath perceived by Doctor Ian SWAYZE, a psychiatrist who examined him at length -- who would benefit from treatment within the youth justice system. "If he doesn't get treatment, he will remain a high risk to reoffend. The issue is, where's he going to get the treatment? It sounds like the [penitentiary] is not the place to get it."
John DENNIS, Mr. FERRIMAN's lawyer, called the past three years "a roller coaster ride" and said he, too, would appeal the decision to sentence the young men as adults.
Ms. CHAMPAGNIE said nothing.
Dressed in a ribbed beige sweater and dark pants and flanked by supporters, she started dabbing at her eyes as she took her seat in the first row, the same place she occupied for each day of the sentencing hearing, listening attentively to Judge McCOMBS.
Each time he alluded to the brutal murder, tears flowed, and when he described how Mr. FERRIMAN helped move the younger boy's body, she held her eyes tightly shut.
Talk of Mr. MADDEN's thoughts elicited a different reaction.
"[Kevin] has repeatedly stated that he has never loved anyone, and has never felt love from anyone," the judge said.
Ms. CHAMPAGNIE looked down and shook her head.
And when the judge told the court that Mr. MADDEN blames his mother for not protecting him, she again shook her head.
She didn't react when Mr. MADDEN's sentence was announced.
But she burst into tears when Judge McCOMBS offered his condolences to her family.
She wanted Johnathon's identity revealed, she told the trial earlier, because she wanted him to be remembered -- to have a face.
When she realized yesterday the publication ban could be lifted, she exhaled a sigh of relief.
Homicide squad Detective Sergeant Terry WARK, who became close to the family throughout their ordeal, said later that Ms. CHAMPAGNIE was content with the outcome and still wants to be in Mr. MADDEN's life.
"But she realizes he needs help," Det. Sgt. WARK said. "She's happy that he'll be in a youth facility for the next two years, because he has been getting a lot of help in there."
The judge's ruling was fair, he said. "He was very compassionate to the family, but I think his sentence today was very helpful to the two boys, and it also gets across the message of deterrence."
Dr. SWAYZE also voiced approval.
Mr. MADDEN, he said, is "salvageable to the extent that he's relatively young, and he hasn't had a lifetime of entrenched antisocial attitudes."
Johnathon and Kevin's biological father, also named Kevin MADDEN and estranged from Ms. CHAMPAGNIE since 1993, had no comment on the ruling.
After the sentencing, the brothers' aunt, Wendy EBERHARDT, read a statement on behalf of her family.
"We are relieved to see an end to the trial," she said. "We are pleased that Kevin and Tim are going to get help with their problems. We're relieved to have Johnathon's full name released, so that we can now properly memorialize him."
'BF's 4-ever'
He'd grown up building forts, hurling mud pies with his Friends and playing Little League.
Now he was 12, and larger horizons beckoned.
His voice was beginning to break, he'd started junior high and girls were on his mind.
His best friend's grandmother recalled the fair, blue-eyed boy plunking down at her kitchen table on a November day, three years ago, and musing about a crush. Where should he take her for dinner? he wondered.
None of it would come to pass.
A few weeks later, Johnathon MADDEN was ambushed and stabbed to death by his older brother Kevin, becoming Toronto's 59th homicide victim of 2003.
Until yesterday, he could not be identified, because his name would reveal those of his accused killers.
"He just had a sweetness about him," said the grandmother of his best friend, Nathan. "We miss him."
Johnathon Robert MADDEN was born in Toronto on May 11, 1991, the second son of Joanne and Kevin MADDEN.
The pair separated when Kevin was 7 and Johnathon 3. Their mother remarried soon after the divorce.
The court heard that while a teenaged Kevin had problems in class, at home and with the law, Johnathon led a happy childhood.
"Johnathon was a compassionate boy. He was worried about what was going on in his family. And loved his brother," said the woman, who did not want to be identified.
Johnathon and Nathan lived blocks apart in North York and, for six years, they were inseparable. They built forts, attended Raptors games with Johnathon's family and revelled in nicki-nicki-nine-door "missions."
One weekend, they dotted Nathan's grandmother's yard with holes and had mud fights.
The summer they were 9, they had a marathon number of sleepovers that lasted three weeks.
On the last day of his life, Johnathon walked Nathan home after a snowball fight.
Hours later, the boy was slashed to death by his brother in the basement of his family home.
Nathan, 10 at the time of the killing, testified at two trials held for his friend's accused killers. The first ended in a mistrial.
Johnathon's mother, now Ms. CHAMPAGNIE, wants her son to be remembered, and created a memorial website (http://www.johnathon-madden.memory-of.com). In it, Johnathon is remembered as the boy with the big smile who loved tacos, saltfish and making people laugh.
His aunt, Margo ANDERSON, wrote: "To my nephew, may you enjoy skateboarding with the angels."
A classmate wrote: "You always were the funny one in the class."
And Nathan STEVENSON, Johnathon's co-conspirator, mud-fight rival and sleepover buddy, wrote that he misses his best friend, signing it "BF's 4-ever."
Hayley Mick
'You just don't understand'
During the three years that homicide investigator Detective Sergeant Terry WARK helped shape the prosecution case against Kevin MADDEN, the accused responded to his many questions just once.
"I said to him, 'Kevin, this was your brother. How could you do this?' " the policeman recalled.
"And he said, 'You don't understand. It built up. You just don't understand.' That's the only thing he ever said to me, he never said another word."
Blond, tall and broad shouldered -- he weighed about 230 pounds when he killed his young brother -- Mr. MADDEN appeared to listen carefully during his two murder trials, occasionally peering around the room with his cold, flat eyes.
But he never testified and only once did he display any emotion.
That was when his mother, Joanne CHAMPAGNIE, described her pain and her love for both of her sons.
Her words left Mr. MADDEN sobbing quietly, rocking in his chair in the prisoners' box.
To the end, the teenaged killer was an enigma.
Mr. MADDEN's history -- moving from house to house after his parents' marriage failed, habitual truancy at 10 different schools, alcohol abuse that started at the age of 12, sharing his home with a stepfather he hated -- offered some grim early warning signs.
When he killed his 12-year-old brother, he was already on probation over threats he had made to schoolmates
He also threatened to blow up one school. He was suspended at least six times from the last high school he attended.
Some observers -- including the judge who sentenced him to life imprisonment yesterday -- nonetheless see a glimmer of hope, because of his youth.
So does his biological father.
"He's got ambition now," Kevin MADDEN Sr. told the court after visiting his son in custody. "He wants to get good grades, wants to be productive, he seems like a totally different person."
Prosecutor Hank GOODY saw things entirely differently.
"Mr. MADDEN is now the same person psychologically as he was November 23, 2003," he told the court. "And is likely to remain the same psychologically for the foreseeable future."
And forensic psychiatrist Doctor Ian SWAYZE painted a picture that was alarming.
"He really is sort of a smouldering volcano, with steam coming out of the vents," he testified.
"These explosions of anger are not out of character, not aberrant. There's a cascade towards a terrible event… a path towards disaster."
