TORONTO - Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with a deadly weekend fight in Oakville.
The victim, now identified by Halton Regional Police as Christopher Stairs, was found lying lifeless in the intersection of Kerr and John Sts. just after 11 p.m. Saturday.
Following a post-mortem examination, investigators now say the 31-year-old Oakville man was stabbed to death.
Two men, both 18 and from Oakville, have since been taken into custody, police said.
Nazir Akbari is charged with second-degree murder.
