Court hearing set for today for man accused in Markham quadruple homicide


NEWMARKET, Ont. — A man accused in an alleged quadruple homicide north of Toronto is expected to appear in a court via videolink later today.

Menhaz Zaman was charged with four counts of first-degree murder after police found the bodies of four people in a Markham, Ont., home late last month.

The four have been identified as 70-year-old Firoza Begum, 50-year-old Momtaz Begum, 59-year-old Moniruz Zaman and 21-year-old Malesa Zaman.

Friends have said they are Menhaz Zaman’s grandmother, parents and sister.

Today’s hearing for Zaman, 23, is set to take place in Newmarket, Ont.

A joint funeral for the four people found dead was held in east Toronto on Friday.
