VIDEO: Terrace man charged with Calgary second degree murder

Dennis Sorge to appear in Calgary court today

CALGARY police this morning say Dennis Jan Sorge, 33, of Terrace, B.C. has been charged with the 2016 second degree murder of a Calgary man.

Calvin Timothy Brooker’s body was discovered Sept. 1, 2016 in an alley near his home that morning and investigators believe Brooker, 57, was killed at his home and then moved.

“It is believed Brooker and the suspect were known to one another and that an altercation inside the home led to his death,” indicated Calgary police in a release this morning.

Sorge is to appear in Calgary court today.

Calgary police thanked the Terrace RCMP detachment and the region’s major crime section for their assistance in the investigation and subsequent arrest.

A Calgary police official described the RCMP cooperation as “fantastic”.

Information released at a press conference this morning indicates Sorge was arrested in Terrace June 27 and returned to Calgary.

Brooker’s death was the 16th homicide in Calgary in 2016.
