Police said they found Muswagon at a Sargent Avenue apartment building around 7:45 p.m. She was rushed to hospital in critical condition, where she was pronounced dead.

According to police, the suspect and victim knew each other, and Swampy — who has been charged with second-degree murder — was arrested at the same apartment without incident.
