The suspect in the Monday night stabbing death of a 40 year old Cote des Neiges man appeared in court today.

Amalam Thandapanthesigar spoke very little and the court communicated with the 34-year-old through a translator.

He is the neighbour of the victim, Jeyaran Manikarajah, and is the man police say stabbed him to death.

Thandapanthesigar wore a pink and white striped polo shirt over his slight frame, his hair thinning and sporting a close-cropped beard.

The victim's family say both he and the accused are from the same village in Sri Lanka.

Police say a love triangle between the suspect, the victim and the victim's wife was originally considered a motive but later abandoned.

Thandapanthesigar's next appearance is July 18.
