1 0

The OPP has charged one person in connection to the fatal roof collapse in Elliot Lake in 2012.

Robert Wood of Sault Ste. Marie has been charged with two counts of Criminal Negligence Causing Death and one count of Criminal Negligence Causing Bodily Harm. The 64-year-old was the last engineer to inspect the mall before the roof caved in.

He's expected to appear in court in Elliot Lake on March 25.

The collapse killed 74-year-old Doloris Perizzolo and 37-year-old Lucie Aylwin.

This announcement comes on the heels of a judicial inquiry into the collapse just outside of Sudbury.

The inquiry heard from 125 witnesses and wrapped up in October. A report is due before the end of October of this year.

The OPP says their investigation continues.
