Five first-degree murder charges have been laid against 22-year-old Matthew de Grood. 


All six were at a house party in the northwest community of Brentwood to celebrate the last day of university classes. 

The man facing five murder charges in Calgary’s worst mass killing was held at a forensic psychiatric facility on Wednesday to determine whether he was fit to navigate the legal system, although his lawyer said he was lucid and able to communicate.

Matthew de Grood, a 22-year-old University of Calgary student and son of a senior police official, is accused of walking into a house party early Tuesday, grabbing a large kitchen knife, and going on a stabbing rampage.
