Police have arrested a 35-year-old Hamilton man in connection with an investigation into the city's sixth homicide of 2012.
Officers were called to the area of Blake Street and Maplewood Avenue Thursday afternoon and found a man in his mid 30s on the street bleeding heavily from the neck.
He later died in hospital and police determined he'd been involved in an altercation in an area home.
“We're working to positively identify the victim,” Det. Sgt. David Beech said. “We just don't know who he is.”
Beech said he was not prepared to discuss the nature of the wound or how the man died.
Shortly before midnight Thursday, a man turned himself in at Hamilton's central police station.
Steven Corbett, 35, has been charged with second-degree murder. He appeared in court Friday.
Beech said that police are not looking for other suspects, but are “always welcome to more information.”
Anyone with details related to the case are asked to contact Det. Peter Thom of the homicide unit at 905-546-3843 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.With files from the Canadian Press
