(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Appearing in courtroom 104 this morning is 32-year-old David Gregorovich.
He is being charged with the second degree murder of Andrew Ayre. He is also facing a charge of Robbery.
Andrew Ayre was brutally beaten and left for dead near the intersection of Victoria and North on Thursday April 25th, 2019.
His Worship Bernard Caron is present along with Crown Attorney Tamara Fairchild and Gregorovich’s lawyer of choice is Tyler Woods, who is also present.
Gregorovich is being sent to the Thunder Bay district jail as a Justice of the Peace cannot handle the matter of murder.
Details are thin at this point, but the summary is that Andrew was attending a rehabilitation session in Victoriaville Mall regarding an injury to his shoulder. After his session, he attended Newfie’s and had a drink or two. It is believed that while paying for his drink, someone noticed he had some money in his wallet.
Andrew left Newfie’s and was headed down Victoria Ave towards Simpson Street. He was being followed by a group of people. Near the corner of Victoria and North, the group engaged in an altercation with Andrew, resulting in Andrew being brutally beaten.
His money, cell phone and smokes were removed from him. Andrew was picked up by ambulance and taken to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre where he was in the intensive care unit. He later died on April 29th, 2019 from his injuries.
The investigation is continuing.
