More than a month after an arrest warrant was issued in the death of his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Raynald Létourneau has been charged with first-degree murder.

He appeared in a Montreal courtroom Tuesday afternoon.

 Charlie Cecilia Garcia Larez, 36, was found dead  in bed in an apartment on Goyer Street near Darlington Avenue in Côte-des-Neiges in May. ​

An arrest warrant was issued for Raynald Létourneau in July and he was added to the list of Quebec's most wanted.

Montreal police said Létourneau was arrested Monday in a building in Pointe-aux-Trembles thanks to calls received by the Info-Crime police tip line.

He was transported to an operational centre, where he was met by investigators.

Létourneau, 46, hadn't been seen since.

Larez moved to Canada less than a year ago to earn money to send back home to her family in Venezuela. 

He is scheduled to appear in court again on Sept. 10.
