Man charged in fatal Maple Ridge stabbing

Police say Kenneth Trevor McCulloch and victim Stacey King had a dispute

A man has been charged with murder for allegedly stabbing another man to death on a Maple Ridge street

Police allege Kenneth Trevor Percy McCulloch is responsible for killing Stacey Raymond King, who found just after midnight Aug. 2 collapsed at the corner of Dewdney Trunk Road and 223rd Street.

Paramedics with the B.C. Ambulance Service rushed King to hospital but the 45-year-old succumbed to multiple stab wounds. He was pronounced dead just after 6:30 am. Aug. 3.

Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound with the RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said the suspect fled the scene before police arrived.

“Investigators have been working non-stop to identify and apprehend the suspect in this homicide,” added Pound.

McCulloch, 39, was charged Thursday with second degree murder.

Police confirmed that McCulloch and King knew each other but wouldn’t elaborate on a motive, only saying the pair had a dispute that night.

“Having charge approval less than two weeks after a homicide is a very positive outcome and speaks to the success and effectiveness of police integration,” said Pound. “IHIT worked in partnership with the E-Division Major Crime Unit and Ridge Meadows RCMP to ensure the suspect was identified, apprehended and brought before the Courts as quickly as possible.”
