Wasaga Beach man found guilty of manslaughter

Wasaga Beach | by Ian MacLennan  

Erick Tello Arias was stabbed to death during the May 2016 long weekend.

A manslaughter verdict from a jury in the second degree murder trial of Dillion Childs,  who was charged in the 2016 stabbing death of Erick Tello Arias during the 2016 May long weekend in Wasaga Beach.

CTV news reports that in court, Childs admitted to stabbing Tello Arias of Caledon, who was 23 at the time, but his lawyer argued it was in self-defence.

The crown said the then 21 year old Childs is a drug dealer and knew what he was doing.

Sentencing hearing is set for July.
