Police confirmed Monday that the death of a 54-year-old woman in Montreal’s Parc-Extension neighbourhood was a homicide.

The woman’s body was found inside an apartment on De Liège Street on Sunday after police were called to the area for an armed assault at 1:30 p.m.

When officers arrived on the scene, they located a 23-year-old man who had been stabbed with a sharp object in the upper body.

He was taken to hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

A 26-year-old woman was arrested at the scene.

At the time, police said that additional information received during the intervention led officers to a neighbouring unit, where they discovered the woman’s body.
