Toronto police say a man has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of a woman whose body was found across the street from an Etobicoke apartment building on Saturday morning.
Police issued a news release on Sunday afternoon, indicating that 30-year-old Emmanuel Owusu-Ansah of Toronto had been charged with first-degree murder.
He was arrested Saturday morning in Mississauga with the assistance of Peel Regional Police. The accused appeared in court on Sunday morning.
The name of the 27-year-old female victim was not immediately released, as police say they are still notifying next of kin.
Members of the victim's family have told CBC News that the woman is survived by two young sons.
Call brought police to crime scene
Police had received a call about a "possible domestic situation" in advance of finding the victim’s body on Saturday morning.
On Saturday, Insp. Tim Crone told reporters that police had arrived at the scene on Richgrove Drive, near Eglinton Avenue West and Martin Grove Road, quickly finding evidence that a struggle had taken place.
"Immediately afterwards, they located the deceased," Crone told reporters on Saturday.
Police say the victim’s body had "obvious signs of trauma" when found. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Crone said police were securing two other locations in the Greater Toronto Area that may form part of their investigation.
On Sunday, police said they are looking for information from "anyone who may have seen anything in the Richgrove Drive area" on Saturday morning.
