Valleyfield femicide: accused stabs partner 119 times

A pizza delivery man from Salaberry-de-Valleyfield who used cocaine during his shift allegedly killed his wife with 119 stab wounds at their home before turning himself in to the police in November 2019.

“Linda Lalonde was sitting at the table, her back to her husband. He told her to close her eyes, that he had a surprise for her. He took a knife from a block – the biggest knife – and gave her a first blow to the back. The autopsy revealed 119 wounds made by a sharp object, “summarized Mr.e Hélène Langis, Crown prosecutor, in her opening statement.

The jury trial of Stéphane Massé opened this morning at the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield courthouse. The 41-year-old man is accused of killing his wife, Linda Lalonde, who is 49 years old, at their residence on Verner Street.

That day, Massé presented himself at a Montreal police station, saying he was coming to report because he “killed his partner.”

During a filmed interrogation, he would have confessed everything, said Me Oil to the jury, who will also have a chance to see it during the trial.

“You can learn from Mr. Massé’s mouth what happened in the hours before and after the murder of Linda Lalonde,” said the Crown prosecutor, who worked with Mr.e Lili Prévost-Gravel.
