Family says farewell to slain couple
'You shouldn't have to defend your name,' niece says, reacting to Mexican allegations
By Jeff GRAY/GREY with a report from Timothy APPLEBY and Canadian PRESS, Page A9
Woodbridge, Ontario -- At a funeral in front of hundreds of mourners, the grieving niece of the suburban Toronto couple found slain in their Mexican hotel room said her uncle should not have to defend his name from beyond the grave.
"At this time, you shouldn't have to defend your name," Rosanna IANIERO said in a eulogy at St. Clare of Assisi Church in Woodbridge, addressing the late Domenico IANIERO. "… There is only goodness attached to it."
Her remarks, made in a brief, emotional speech about the IANIEROs, grandparents from Woodbridge whom she described as loving and caring, appeared meant to respond to reports that Mexican investigators have suggested the victims may have had links to "illicit activities."
On February 20, Mr. IANIERO, a 59-year-old real-estate agent, and his 55-year-old wife, Annunziata, were found with their throats slit at an upscale Mayan Riviera resort near Cancun where their daughter, Lily, was to have married on the beach.
While initially suspecting two Canadian women staying at the hotel, Mexican investigators have shifted their focus to the family and to people who knew the victims. York Regional Police have been asked by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who are working with Mexican authorities, to assist in the investigation, and say they hope to start interviewing the 16-member wedding party today. Others may be questioned as well.
As recently as Friday, Mexican lead prosecutor Bello Melchor Rodriguez y Carrillo suggested that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police had said "the slain person had ties with illicit activities." The Mounties have said they have no evidence to link Mr. and Mrs. IANIERO to organized crime.
Yesterday began with a ceremony at a funeral home. Outside, as pallbearers prepared to lift the two wooden coffins into waiting hearses, two white doves were released from a wicker basket to symbolize the couple's souls ascending to heaven, followed by the release of two dozen more doves meant to symbolize their Friends and family.
Later, outside the large, recently constructed church, more than a dozen television cameras and newspaper photographers with stepstools and telephoto lenses captured mourners as they arrived.
More than 300 people filed into the church for the hour-long service. The immediate family sat up front. son Anthony IANIERO, who spoke to the media after the killings, and his wife were the first to take communion.
The couple's niece, a slender blond woman in a black dress and the only direct member of the family to speak at the ceremony, said that the IANIEROs "dedicated their lives to the well-being of their children" and touched many lives with their kindness.
"They loved nothing more than to be in a room filled with music, laughter and the people they cared about," she said.
She described her aunt as an angel, her voice cracking: "I will never forget how you loved my son… as though he was your own."
The slain couple, married for 37 years, had been "graceful" when they danced. They both had been born in Italy but met in Canada in 1964 after their families immigrated. They were married in 1968, and had one son and three daughters.
During the service, Reverend John BOREAN alluded to the tragic nature of the couple's deaths, and urged mourners to remember the Christian ideal of forgiveness.
"I think we need to put forgiveness in our hearts for those people who would have committed such a crime," he said, adding that the criminals must be prevented from killing again.
Outside the church, however, many said the path to reconciliation would be difficult to forge.
"We really celebrate the lives of two people today, but hopefully one day we'll also celebrate justice," Liberal member of Parliament Maurizio BEVILACQUA, who represents the riding of Vaughan, where Woodbridge is located, said after the service.
There has been intense scrutiny of the Mexican authorities' handling of the case. Witnesses: at the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort at the time of the killing have raised concerns about the professionalism of the Mexican police, some alleging that the crime scene was contaminated. Mexican authorities had suggested two Thunder Bay women were the killers, but no longer see them as suspects, sources say.
Peter Van Loan, parliamentary secretary to Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay, attended the funeral and told reporters he was satisfied with the investigation's progress.
York Police Inspector Les YOUNG, who attended the funeral in uniform, said the family is anxious to speak with police about the case. "They're very concerned about the rumours and innuendoes," he said.

Four taxi drivers attacked in 24 hours
Father of four dead after passenger stabs him in the neck, back and torso
By Timothy APPLEBY, Page A24
A 40-year-old cab driver died after being stabbed by a passenger in east Toronto early yesterday -- one in a wave of four attacks on city-area taxi drivers within 24 hours.
Mahmood BHATTI, a father of four, was found bleeding from the back, neck and chest at around 3: 30 a.m. after his Beck cab slammed into the back of a parked car at Coxwell and Danforth Avenues.
He remained in hospital on life support, but doctors pronounced him dead at 10: 20 p.m.
More than a dozen cabbies who gathered outside Saint Michael's Hospital while Mr. BHATTI's family were at his bedside mourned him as a hard-working colleague and exemplary parent.
Beck general manager Gail BECK- SOUTER said the same of Mr. BHATTI, who owned his car and had driven for the company for about six years.
"This is a real tragedy," she said. "He is a terrific guy, very enthusiastic about business. Always wanting to make improvements within the industry. The guy with the good ideas. He'll be sorely missed."
A man was spotted fleeing the scene, and police are optimistic digital photographs from the in-car camera, required in all city taxis, will lead to an arrest.
In Markham, meanwhile, a second cab driver was in stable condition after his throat was cut in a carjacking around midnight.
In a third incident on Eglinton Avenue in west-end Toronto at around 5: 40 a.m., a cabbie driving for Royal Taxi was beaten and robbed of his vehicle, apparently after an argument. The car is a blue Chevrolet Impala bearing the licence plate ABPF 744. The driver was listed in stable condition.
And early Monday, a cabbie driving two men north on Highway 400 was robbed at gunpoint of cash and his phone and left stranded by the roadside after his taxi was stolen.
It was later recovered at a curling rink in Bradford, about midway between Toronto and Barrie, and provincial police retrieved photographs of the two assailants.
The last slaying of a Toronto cab driver occurred in September, after a gap of several years, when Morteazai KHORASSANI, 42, was stabbed in his parked taxi behind an apartment building on Don Mills Road. A 19-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder.
In general, violence against the roughly 5,000 taxis and 10,000 drivers has declined steeply in recent years, after cameras and other safety measures were implemented.
"Crimes committed against cab drivers have decreased by about 70 per cent since 2000," said Jim BELL, president of Diamond Taxicab and a leader of the Toronto Taxicab Alliance, an owners group.
Mr. BELL, who knows Mr. BHATTI, credits a range of city initiatives for the decline -- the in-car cameras, global positioning devices, special emergency flashers and enhanced driver-safety training.
"This has been a tough day," he said. "But it's an anomaly. We've seen it over the years where we've had a whole rash of incidents in a very short time and then nothing happens for a couple of years. You just can't predict when and how it's going to happen."
Bruce ROBERTSON, who heads the city's licensing division, concurred.
"This is a dangerous profession, for obvious reasons, but what's happened here is not typical at all. I don't know what would explain it."
Co-op driver Edward LEIGHTON, a 16-year veteran of the roads, says he figured out the risks long ago.
"I drive during the day, in the downtown, and I haven't had a problem in 10 years," he said.
"Late at night -- that's where almost of the problems happen. I'm cautious; I think that's why I've survived. I'm choosy about what areas I go into. But a lot of drivers have big expenses, they're desperate, so they'll pick up anybody."

No motive apparent in garage double killing
Scarborough deaths and fatal shooting in West End bring city homicide total to 38
By Timothy APPLEBY and Scott ROBERTS, Page A10
Toronto's homicide total for the year has risen to 38 after a middle-aged woman and a 31-year-old father of three were found slain in a blood-soaked garage on a quiet Scarborough street.
The shooting took place late Wednesday. In an unrelated gun incident earlier the same evening on the other side of the city, a man newly released from prison was shot in the head. He died of his injuries yesterday.
Both of the Scarborough victims, believed to be Canadians of Filipino origin, were shot in the head and were discovered by the man's wife when she returned home, police said. The relationship between the two deceased was not clear, police said.
Two assailants believed to be Filipino or southern Asian, wearing light-coloured shirts, were being sought.
Detective Mike BARSKY of the homicide squad discounted widely circulating suggestions that the female victim -- identified by other police sources as Isabelita MALEJANA, 56, of west-end Toronto -- was a transsexual or transvestite. "I don't know where that came from," he said.
A former neighbour said Ms. MALEJANA was married with children. The family used to live on Embro Drive, near Allen Road and Sheppard Avenue.
"It's so sad that this happened," said Emily, who spoke on the condition that her last name not be published. "She was very quiet. She didn't come out of the house very much. The family kept to themselves for the most part."
Emily said the family moved away from the area about a year-and-a-half ago, but she didn't know where they had been planning to relocate.
Speculation that the crime was a murder-suicide is false, Det. BARSKY said. However, no motive was immediately apparent.
The second victim was identified as Virgilio CUEVAS, whose wife discovered the bodies at 58 Canoe Cres., near Steeles Avenue and Markham Road, when she opened her garage door at around 8: 40 p.m. and called 911.
Mr. CUEVAS and Ms. MALEJANA were pronounced dead on arrival at Sunnybrook hospital.
Neighbours described seeing a bloody scene inside the garage after police arrived.
"I came outside and ran across the street and saw the police running with their guns out," said Jupiter ENGRACIA, who lives down the street from the house.
"There was a body in the garage with blood spattered everywhere."
When emergency crews removed the other body, it was wrapped in a blanket, Mr. ENGRACIA said.
Ammunition was reported to have been found in the home, but police said there was no sign of a gun at the crime scene.
The couple's three children, all believed to be under 5, were in the house at the time and were uninjured.
Late in the evening, police removed them from the family home. Neighbours said they often saw Mr. CUEVAS playing outside with his children.
Yesterday, police tape cordoned off the front yard of the home as a police cruiser guarded the area. A lawn mower and three small bicycles sat in the yard.
Neighbours said they were shocked that such a gruesome slaying could happen in this quiet, newly built subdivision.
"This is scary; it's just two houses away," said Darwin RUBIO, "My wife wants to move…. This makes her want to move more so."
Separately on Wednesday night, a man in his 40s and just freed from jail for breach of probation was also taken to Sunnybrook hospital in critical condition.
Shot and wounded in an apartment above a bar on Weston Road near Eglinton Avenue, he succumbed to his wounds yesterday.
The man's identity was not immediately released, pending notification of relatives, but a friend who said she knew him well gave his name as Gerald McDONALD.
Four unidentified youths were spotted fleeing that crime scene. The incident was the latest in a rash of recent fatal shootings in the Weston Road area.
The three deaths push the city's firearms-related tally close to the same number as was recorded this time last year. In total, 52 people died as a result of gunshot wounds in 2005, an all-time high.

Love triangle suspected in double-slaying, suicide
Police theorize Swiss man may have found his girlfriend with German
By Timothy APPLEBY with reports from Omar EL AKKAD and Naomi BUCK, Page A13
Three European tourists found stabbed to death early Monday at an expensive downtown Toronto hotel were slain in a double murder-suicide, police confirmed yesterday, and likely perished in a deadly love triangle.
Killed were Swiss nationals Nadja WYRSCH, 24, and Andre ASCHWANDEN, 35, along with German-born Thomas KAUFMANN, 35, who also lived in Switzerland.
Police believe Mr. ASCHWANDEN killed Ms. WYRSCH, his girlfriend, and Mr. KAUFMANN and then turned his knife on himself.
Ms. WYRSCH was a biologist specializing in cytology, the study of cells, while Mr. ASCHWANDEN is believed to have been a salesman for a fuel-injection company. Both were residents of Lucerne, in central Switzerland, where German is the predominant language.
Ms. WYRSCH would have turned 25 yesterday.
Their friend, Mr. KAUFMANN, lived near Bern, the Swiss capital, where he worked at the University of Bern's veterinary clinic.
Together, the three flew to Toronto from Zurich on Sunday afternoon and were part of a tour group of about 24 people -- mostly Germans but also including some Swiss and French -- that was to tour Canada for three weeks, visiting several large cities.
Ms. WYRSCH and Mr. ASCHWANDEN knew Mr. KAUFMANN, police believe, which would explain why they agreed to share a room on the 19th floor of the Delta Chelsea on downtown Gerrard Street, Canada's largest hotel.
"We believe they all knew each other reasonably well," said Detective Dan NIELSEN of the Toronto homicide squad.
As well, each of them appeared to have a hearing disability.
"The information we have is that at least two of them were hearing impaired, and possibly all three," Det. NIELSEN said. "We're trying to verify that."
Ms. WYRSCH, who was on the board of LKH Switzerland, an association for the deaf, was killed by stab wounds to the chest and a slash to the neck, inflicted by a multibladed, Swiss army-type knife that was found in the blood-soaked hotel room.
The same weapon was used to kill Mr. KAUFMANN and Mr. ASCHWANDEN, both of whom died from stab wounds to the chest.
With no signs of forced entry to the room and no evidence of robbery, the working theory of investigators is that the violence stemmed from anger or jealousy.
Police believe Mr. ASCHWANDEN may have unexpectedly discovered his girlfriend and Mr. KAUFMANN in the room together and that he flew into a murderous rage.
Other guests on the 19th floor reported hearing loud arguing and the sound of running.
A hotel security guard making his rounds shortly before 4: 30 a.m. discovered Mr. KAUFMANN on the floor of the corridor near one of the elevators, reportedly clad only in a pair of boxer shorts, after apparently fleeing the murder scene. He was taken to nearby Saint Michael's Hospital, where he died shortly afterward.
A trail of blood led down the hallway to room 1908, where Ms. WYRSCH's body was found on the floor. That of Mr. ASCHWANDEN was lying on one of the beds. Police described the scene as horrific.
No other suspects are being sought and Det. NIELSEN said he expects the investigation to wrap up soon.
"We're still processing the [crime] scene and a few more witnesses, but we're getting pretty close."
The three visitors were on a tour organized through the company Jonview Canada, owned and operated by Transat A.T. Inc. of Montreal.
The double murder pushed Toronto's homicide total so far this year to 46.
A Swiss relative of Ms. WYRSCH, a farmer who said he had known her since childhood and described her as "a good person," said she knew several members of the tour group.
"She worked hard, she deserved the holiday. She didn't go on holiday often…. It was a normal group tour."

Scarborough man, 22, was target, police say
By Armina LIGAYA and Timothy APPLEBY, Page A13
Reynaldo SANTOS was letting the dog out early on Sunday morning when he made a grisly discovery in his backyard.
Near the back door of the family's Scarborough home lay the lifeless body of his 22-year-old son, Patrick.
An official police statement said the young Mr. SANTOS showed "obvious signs of trauma." A police source who asked not to be identified said the young man's hands had been bound.
"We don't believe it was a random attack. We believe he was targeted," said Detective-Sergeant Dean BURKS. A postmortem examination has been conducted, but the cause of death has not been released.
While police believe Mr. SANTOS was targeted, there's little doubt that Piratheep THARMAKULASINGAM, 25 -- slain just hours after Mr. SANTOS's body was found and one of three people killed on Sunday -- was singled out for death.
Mr. THARMAKULASINGAM was walking along Huntsmill Boulevard, near Warden and McNicoll Avenues, when a car jumped the curb and hit him, police said. The driver then jumped out, attacked him repeatedly with a machete, hopped into the vehicle and fled.
Police responding to a 911 call at 10 a.m. found him injured on the grass. He was taken to hospital and pronounced dead. A postmortem examination showed Mr. THARMAKULASINGAM died from "sharp force injuries to the neck," police said.
A warrant has been issued for Sujan ABEYEWARDENE, 19, of Richmond Hill, on a charge of first-degree murder.
Also yesterday, police identified Christopher James WHITE/WHYTE, 35, as the third person killed Sunday. Mr. WHITE/WHYTE, of no fixed address, was on King Street West in Parkdale when he was shot to death.
On Bridlington Street, where the SANTOS family lives, neighbours say they were shocked to find their suburb swarming with police early Sunday.
The SANTOS home, a white, sixties-era backsplit with a garden and a swing set in the back, has been sealed with police tape.
"You think you live in a secluded pocket… you never think something like this is going to happen here," said Wayne BRIDGER, a retired fireman who lives across the street.
The SANTOS family are "very nice, very friendly," but keep to themselves, he said.

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."
