An 81-year-old-man has been charged with second-degree murder after a 76-year-old-woman was found dead in a north Etobicoke home late Wednesday, Toronto police say.
Emergency crews were called to a residence on Farley Crescent near Callowhill Drive, in the Martin Grove Road and The Westway area, just after 9:30 p.m. for a medical complaint.
When officers arrived they found a woman without vital signs, suffering from severe injuries, Toronto police Const. David Hopkinson said on Twitter Wednesday night.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, paramedics told CBC Toronto. A male patient was transported to hospital, but paramedics would not release the nature of his injuries.
The woman‘s death was initially deemed suspicious, but Thursday morning police ruled it a homicide.
This is Toronto‘s first homicide of 2018.
