Couple expected in Brampton court today to face murder charges

Caleb and Bridget Harrison

A common-law couple is expected in Brampton court later this morning to face two counts of first-degree murder each.

Melissa Merritt and Christopher Fattore were arrested in Nova Scotia a few days ago in connection with the murders of Bridget Harrison and her 41-year-old son Caleb.

Melissa is Caleb's ex-wife. He was found dead in his home last August. Bridget was found dead in 2010. Police announced this week that they have determined both were killed by asphyxiation.

Police are also investigating the death of Caleb's dad Bill who was found dead in the same home in 2009.

The bail hearing for Merritt and Fattore will take place in the Brampton courthouse on Hurontario St.
