Man arrested in slaying of 4 in Canada

July 29, 2019

MARKHAM, Ontario (AP) — Canadian police have charged a 23-year-old man with first-degree murder after four bodies were found in a home north of Toronto.

York Regional Police Constable Andy Pattenden said Monday that Menhaz Zaman faces four counts of first-degree murder after the bodies of three adult women and one man were found in the home. He did not say whether there was any relationship between the accused and the victims or what a possible motive might have been.

Zaman was taken into custody Sunday afternoon after police were called to the home in response to reports of multiple injuries inside.

Pattenden said Zaman answered the door when officers arrived but police did not say who phoned in the tip.
