EDMONTON - Mounties have arrested the brother of a man who was found guilty of first-degree murder this fall in the so-called Surrey Six case.

RCMP say a Nanaimo, British Columbia, man was taken into custody Monday at Edmonton International Airport after a passenger caused a disturbance on a plane.

Police say Justin Haevischer, who is 28, was wanted on Canada Wide Warrants issued out of Surrey, B.C., on a charge of accessory after the fact to a 2007 murder.

Cody Haevischer was found guilty in October in B.C. of conspiracy and six counts of first-degree murder in the 2007 deaths of six men at an apartment building in Surrey.

RCMP declined further comment on Justin Haevischer's arrest.

Cody Haevischer and fellow gang member Matthew Johnston were sentenced to life in prison earlier this month for the murders.
