Toronto police have charged a second man with second-degree murder in connection with a man’s body found in a burning vehicle last month.
Police were called to the vehicle fire near Steeles Avenue and Gordon Murison Lane around 6 a.m. on Aug. 14.
They found the remains of Johann Persaud, 40, of Toronto. Persaud’s death has since been ruled a homicide.
In a news release, police said that on Wednesday, 36-year-old Toronto man Justin Sandassie surrendered to investigators at 42 Division. He was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, and was set to appear in court today.
