Belleville, Ont. -

Col. Russell Williams, the former commander of CFB Trenton, is due in court today in eastern Ontario to face murder and assault charges.
He is charged with killing two women, sexually assaulting two others and with 82 break-and-enter charges, some of which reportedly involved lingerie.
Williams was charged in February with first-degree murder in the death of Cpl. Marie-France Comeau.
The 37-year-old was a flight attendant at CFB Trenton and served aboard the same military VIP flights Williams piloted for much of the 1990s.
He is also charged with the first-degree murder of Jessica Lloyd of Belleville.
The 27-year-old's body was found in Tweed, Ont., two weeks after she failed to show up at her job in nearby Napanee.
Forty-six of the charges involve break-ins in the eastern Ontario community where Williams lived after taking command of the sprawling airbase in July 2009.
Another 34 charges fall under the jurisdiction of police in Ottawa, where Williams lived with his wife.
