Suspect in heist charged with homicide in Canada


EDMONTON, Alberta — The suspect in an armored car heist at a Canadian university that left three armed guards dead was charged Thursday with three counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder.

Travis Baumgartner, handcuffed and wearing a blue prison jumpsuit, showed no expression in court as he was also charged with four counts of robbery using a firearm. He was not required to enter a plea. The next hearing was scheduled for July 5.

The court ordered Baumgartner not to contact a number of people, including employees of the security company he worked for. Most of the people on the no-contact list are expected to be witnesses, said chief prosecutor Steve Bilodeau.
