REUTERS – The man accused of driving a van into a group of pedestrians in Toronto, Canada, was charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder yesterday (April 25).

The 25-year-old suspect, Alek Minassian, plowed a rented van into pedestrians on a crowded Toronto sidewalk on Monday, killing 10 people and injuring 15 others in Canada’s deadliest mass killing in decades.

Minassian made a brief court appearance in a Toronto courtroom yesterday (April 25) to hear the charges against him. He appeared to understand what was happening and spoke softly to the duty counsel lawyer representing him. His next court appearance is currently slated for May 10. According to Toronto police, he was not known to the police authorities before the incident and had no previous criminal record.
