A 46-year-old woman has allegedly been murdered by her husband at an east-end Toronto home over the weekend before the 50-year-old man was found dead, police say.

Emergency crews were called to a home on James Park Square, near Brimley Road and McNicoll Avenue, at around 7:45 p.m. on Saturday as part of a “wellness check.”

The statement said when officers arrived, a woman was found dead in the hallway of a home. An autopsy later revealed the victim, who was identified as Daisy Sehgal, died after neck compressions.

A spokesperson confirmed to Global News the victim and the man were married.

Although the homicide squad took over the investigation and the death of Sehgal was listed as a homicide, the statement said the deaths “are not being treated as suspicious.” It also said no one else is wanted in connection with the deaths.

Meanwhile, anyone with information about the situation was asked to call police at 416-808-7400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.
