KINGSTON, Ont. — Police in eastern Ontario say they have solved three cold case homicides in Kingston.

Ontario Provincial Police and Kingston police allege a 65-year-old man murdered one woman and two men between 1995 and 2001.

They also allege the man is responsible for a brazen armed bank robbery in Kingston and an explosion in Toronto.

Police say Henrietta Knight, 92, died months after a severe beating on June 2, 1995 when her home was broken into.

They say Richard Kimble, 30, died sometime after he vanished in November 1996, and Stephen St-Denis, 47, died during a suspicious fire on Oct. 21, 2001.

Michael Wentworth, of Kingston, has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder, armed robbery, armed hostage taking and various explosive-related charges.
