-A Halifax man accused of killing two men in Sheet Harbour in 2012 was granted bail yesterday.

Elmer Percy Higgins, 65, was arrested in August and charged with second-degree murder and firearms offences in relation to the deaths of 22-year-old Matthew Allan Hebb and 59-year-old Earle Clayton Stewart. Their bodies were found in a burnt-out cabin off Highway 374 on the Eastern Shore in December 2012.

 

 

Higgins and his wife, 49-year-old Karen Marie Higgins, were arrested shortly after, but were released at that time without charges. They were arrested a second time in March, and again released without charges. Police laid charges against the pair in August.

 

Karen Higgins was released from jail last month.

-Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency used drones to scope out unknown substances inside a transport truck yesterday.

 

 

Highway 102 between the Kearney Lake Road and Larry Uteck Boulevard exits was closed as emergency crews investigated a truck that was pulled over on the shoulder. Police said the driver of the truck was having a medical emergency and was taken to hospital.

 

 

Police said the substance is still unknown, but is being processed as a precaution.
