Montreal police say a 36-year-old man is to face charges in connection with the death of a woman found inside an apartment on Friday.
They say a suspect, not previously known to police, was being met by major crimes investigators after being arrested Friday night.
Const. Caroline Chevrefils says the suspect is believed to be the victim’s ex-spouse and is set to appear at the Montreal courthouse on Saturday.
