Homicide Reward

The murder of Donald Jermaine Stephenson in Halifax has been added to Nova Scotia’s rewards program for major unsolved crimes.

The 21-year-old Stephenson was shot to death when a gunman wearing a skull mask burst into his home in October 2010.

Justice Minister Mark Furey says families deserve closure when they lose a loved one to violence and he’s joining police in asking anyone with a tip about Stephenson’s death to come forward.

The reward program offers up to 150-thousand dollars for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for his and other homicides.
