Scott Matheson, a 43-year-old man, has been arrested and charged with 2nd-degree murder in connection to a 2021 homicide at a Saanich home.

On Wednesday, September 8, 2021, at approximately 11:30 a.m. Saanich Police officers responded to a multi-unit home on Battleford Avenue to a report that a man was deceased inside one of the suites.  Officers located and later identified the deceased as 64-year-old Robert Dobronay, who had been living in the basement suite.
