Nipigon Area Man Charged With Attempted Murder

OPP are charging a 49 year old man with attempted murder, attempted arson and damage to property.

It stems from a report of mischief at a home on Highway 11 near Nipigon.

The homeowner says he tried to leave his house in the early morning on Monday but couldn't because the door was secured from the outside.

After forcing his way out, he found his gas line had been cut and an ignition source was placed beneath the propane fuel.

The suspect remains in police custody and will appear in Thunder Bay court on May 13th.
