He faces two counts of first-degree murder and was to appear for a video bail hearing in St. Catharines on Thursday.

Trevor Barnett, 30, (father of 4, had originally been charged with cocaine trafficking, his criminal record includes convictions for robbery, fleeing from police and firearms offences.) of Scarborough, was originally charged with accessory after the fact to murder but now faces two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the fatal shootings of Christine Crooks, 18, of Toronto, and Juliana Pannunzio, 20, of Windsor, at an Airbnb party on Jan. 19, 2021.

Barnett was in court on Friday in relation to the upgraded charges.
The two women were attending a birthday bash at the mansion along the Niagara Parkway when gunfire erupted.
Previously charged with two counts of first-degree murder was rapper Christopher El Plaga Lucas, 22.

Heidi Bahler, 29, is charged with being an accessory after the fact. (No photos found anywhere)
