Toronto police have arrested Shayne MacDonald, who was the subject of a Canada-wide warrant after the fatal stabbing of his aunt in west-end Toronto Friday night.
The 21-year-old MacDonald was considered "violent, armed and dangerous" after the double stabbing on College St. on Friday that left Vermelhudo, 38, dead and her mother, 59, injured.
On scene, police located two women with serious stab wounds.
She was identified by police Saturday as 38-year-old Sarah Vermelhudo.
On Saturday, police identified a suspect wanted for second-degree murder and attempted murder in connection with the incident.
Brian Russell, a friend and former co-worker of Vermelhudo, said news of her murder came as a a "real shock".
"It doesn't make any sense to me that somebody like her would suffer a fate like that", he said.
Toronto Police released a photograph of the suspect on Saturday morning, alleging he was violent and unsafe.
