Calgary police have charged a man with second-degree murder in a 2010 homicide.
It's been more than two years since the body of Anto Slisko was found in an empty house on Panatella View northwest.
The 58-year-old was hired as a painter, and he was working in the newly-built home where he was found.
A 48-year-old man was arrested in Vancouver on Thursday.
"The motive is a disagreement between two aquaintances that escalated into a violent confrontation," said Staff Sgt. Doug Andrus.
An autopsy showed Slisko died of blunt force trauma.
