RCMP in Colchester and Pictou County says they obtained a warrant for 22-year-old Marcus Michael Denny of Pictou Landing First Nation, N.S., who has been charged with offences related to incidents that occurred on July 1 and Oct. 17.
Denny is facing the following charges:
- Assault with a weapon
- Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose
- Impaired operation of a conveyance
- Impaired operation over 80mg%
- Resisting arrest
- Obstructing a peace officer

Denny was already wanted on a provincewide arrest warrant related to a homicide that occurred in Truro in Sept. 2021.
Denny has been charged with accessory to murder after the fact, in relation to the death of Prabhjot Singh Katri on Sept. 5.
“We laid charges against Marcus Denny of Pictou Landing First Nation. He is 22 years of age. He is also charged with accessory to the murder after the fact," said Truro Police Chief David MacNeil on Oct. 22.
Truro Police responded to a call at about 2:07 am. on Sept. 5 on Robie Street, and when they arrived they found Singh Katri had suffered serious injuries.
The 23-year-old was rushed to the Colchester East Hants Health Center, where he died. Singh Katri came to Canada from India in 2017 to study and had been working as a cab driver and at a Tim Hortons restaurant before his death.
Two men, 20-year-old Cameron James Prosper and 21-year-old Dylan MacDonald have been arrested in connection with Singh Katri’s death, but Denny remains at large.
Police say they have made several attempts to locate Denny, and are requesting assistance from the public.
