Homicide investigators in British Columbia have arrested an Ottawa man in connection with the 2008 murder of Justin Yusko.

Yusko was found stabbed on Jan. 29, 2008, on the side of a road in Pitt Meadows, east of Vancouver.

The 28-year-old was transported to the hospital, where he died.

Cpl. Dominic Duchesneau with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says that on Saturday, police arrested 32-year-old Maly Morn of Ottawa while he was in Metro Vancouver.

Morn has been charged with the first-degree murder of Yusko and kidnapping, and he was to make his first court appearance in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court on Monday.
