Carmela Knight Obituary: In loving memory of Carmela Knight; Who killed Carmela Knight, DATELINE.
When her husband David Knight and his friend Graham MacDonald were identified as the criminals behind planning the grisly murder, the case against Carmela Knight took a catastrophic turn.
In September 2014, MacDonald attacked and strangled Carmela, a 39-year-old woman. Later, without leaving any traces, he burned her body inside the garage of her Pebblestone Crescent house in Ontario.
The police went undercover in a sting operation named Mr. Big to extract a confession from the murderer after trailing the suspects for weeks.
A few months later, police apprehended the plot’s creator and the hired murderer, who were later found guilty of first-degree murder, arson, and conspiracy to commit murder. Matthew Knight, the victim’s brother-in-law, was also mentioned as a potential suspect.
MacDonald’s confession, which the authorities were able to obtain, made it very plain how the two men intended to carry out their murderous scheme.
