Failed robbery led to death
By Melinda DALTON, Free Press Reporter
A robbery gone bad led to a would-be robber dead in a stairwell and an intended victim charged with manslaughter, police said yesterday.
A 24-year-old London man has been charged with manslaughter and two other Londoners with robbery after the city's 11th homicide of the year, police said.
Dead is Stephen Robert CORMACK, 45, police said. An autopsy performed yesterday in Toronto concluded CORMACK died as a result of a stabbing.
Three people -- two men and one woman -- came to a unit in the Northgate Park Apartments at 1424 Huron St. with the intention of robbing a resident, police said.
The resident refused to comply with the demands of the would-be robbers, police said.
Instead, the resident grabbed a weapon and used it on one of the would-be robbers, police said.
The trio ran out of the apartment, police said.
The injured man fled to the building's north stairwell.
A resident found his lifeless body in the stairwell between the first and second floors.
The discovery of a body in the early afternoon Friday, while children played outside and residents went about their business, left the neighbourhood in shock.
Dameon LODGE, 24, was arrested Friday and charged with manslaughter.
Elizabeth SCHMIDT, 39, and Rocco CAVUOTI, 44, both of London, have been charged with robbery in connection with Friday's events.
SCHMIDT was also charged with three counts of assaulting a police officer and property damage.
All three suspects made court appearances yesterday.
This year, the city has already seen more than double the number of homicides than in 2004.
"It is a record number if you consider the totals from the last five years," said Const. Amanda PFEFFER of the London Police.

witness describes man's slaying
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Crime Reporter, Thurs., December 15, A man shot outside a south London townhouse ran through the snow losing his shoes along the way -- in a desperate attempt to get to safety, an eyewitness said yesterday.
The shooting death -- the city's 14th homicide of the year -- happened just before midnight Tuesday after an argument broke out among three men.
"I never ever saw anyone get shot in real life," the witness said, tears streaming down her face. "I'm just in shock. When I saw it, I couldn't believe it was happening.
"I'm just glad my kids slept through it."
Police yesterday identified the dead man as 25-year-old Jeffrey DAVIS of London.
Police said last night a man had been arrested, but no charges were laid.
The eyewitness, who lives in a townhouse complex on Vinewood Court, southeast of Thompson and Pond Mills roads, said she heard a heated exchange late Tuesday and went to look out her window.
Two men were standing next to a car -- one on the passenger side, the other on the driver's side -- in the parking lot of the townhouse complex.
"It sounded like they were arguing and persuading someone not to do something," said the woman, who asked that her name not be used.
The woman said she couldn't hear what the argument was about, but what she saw next was chilling.
The man next to the passenger door was arguing with DAVIS, who was standing in front of 54 Vinewood Court.
"I saw the one guy put his hand up and I heard, 'Pop, pop, pop,' " said the woman, as she motioned like she was holding a gun.
"(DAVIS) stood there like he was in shock. He tried to get over the snowbank and he lost his shoes."
The woman said DAVIS tried to get back inside 54 Vinewood Court, but never made it.
As soon as shots rang out, the man standing next to the driver's door jumped in the car and started it. The shooter, said the woman, bent down to pick something up and also jumped into the car, before fleeing.
The woman said she didn't see the shooter's face and couldn't see what kind of gun he was holding.
But the man was wearing a dark leather jacket with a light-coloured shirt and jeans. She said he had short, spiky hair and a stocky build.
The shocked woman called 911 and when police and paramedics arrived, she saw DAVIS's bloody face.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy determined he died from a gunshot wound.
Another neighbour said she was at home when she heard what sounded like a car backfiring.
"All I heard was three gunshots," said Danielle PEREZ, who looked out her window and saw a dark-coloured Pontiac Sunfire with tinted windows drive off.
"I was pretty freaked out. I've never been so scared in my life. I couldn't sleep at all."
Neighbours said DAVIS worked with the woman who lives at 54 Vinewood Court.
DAVIS was at a company Christmas party when he and some others were invited back to the townhouse to continue the celebrations, neighbours said.
Police confirmed DAVIS didn't live in the complex.
Outside 54 Vinewood Court, blood stained the snow and walkway.
Christmas lights framed the front windows of the house and Mickey Mouse drapes hung over one upstairs bedroom window.
Forensic investigators videotaped and photographed the scene.
Uniformed officers searched a large area of the parking lot blocked off by police tape and scoured the snow with a metal detector.
A police spokesperson said people who live in the area shouldn't be worried.
"This was not a random attack," Const. Amanda PFEFFER said.
Police are still exploring a motive for the slaying, she said.
