UPDATE: Man Arrested for Murder, Was Already On Bail
The man charged in the death of a 27 year old woman in Etobicoke on the weekend, was already out on bail.
Toronto Police held a press conference on Monday, updating their investigation into the city's 3rd murder of 2013.
30 year old Emmanuel Owusu-Ansah was arrested in Mississauga on Saturday and charged with first degree murder.
Detective Sgt Brian Borg from Toronto Police says he was already on bail, facing 8 charges including assault with a weapon, and uttering death threats.
Borg went on to confirm that those charges related to the same victim as this murder.
Toronto police has identified the victim as 27-year-old Bridget Takyi.
Police say it was a very violent incident, with the woman first stabbed to death and then her body set on fire.
One of the conditions of Owusu-Ansah's bail was that he remained under house arrest, a condition he allegedly broke.
Police say it was around 7 o'clock on Saturday morning that officers were called to an area around Weston Road and Eglinton for reports of trouble.
Owusu-Ansah was arrested around 9:45 in the Hurontario and Eglinton area of Mississauga.
Detective Sgt Borg says while they do have a person in custody, the investigation is far from over.
He says a number of things were found at the murder scene, and they've released photos in hopes someone has more information.
