The Vermont State Police has made two arrests arising from the fatal shooting of Jeffrey Caron, 42, of Barre, whose body was found last week in Plainfield. Kyle Bressette, 35, of Barre was taken into custody on a charge of second-degree murder. Chris Relation, 51, of Berlin faces a charge of being an accessory after the fact to second-degree murder. Both men were expected to be arraigned at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 31, in the Criminal Division of Vermont Superior Court in Barre. VSP’s investigation led to identifying Bressette as the suspect in the shooting, which arose from a dispute involving drugs. Investigators believe the homicide occurred on or about Oct. 24 or 25. According to the investigative findings, Relation assisted Bressette following the shooting and failed to report the incident police. Bressette and Relation were ordered jailed without bail at Northwest State Correctional Facility in St. Albans pending their initial court appearances.
