Murder suspect due in court today
A 50-year old man will appear in court later today to be formally charged in the stabbing death of a 33-year old woman in a home on Perras Street in the Rivière -des-Prairies district early yesterday.
Police say Mario Deka made the 911 call alerting authorities to the stabbing.
He was arrested at the home and will be charged with second-degree murder.
Deka is believed to be the spouse of the victim.
It is the 24th murder in Montreal this year.
