Peel Regional Police have arrested and charged a sixth suspect in connection with the kidnapping and death of Markham real estate agent Tony Han.
Police said Tuesday evening they arrested a 19-year-old Markham man they said was the driver of the vehicle involved in the abduction.
Wei Xin Huang was charged on Tuesday with two counts of kidnapping with intent to hold for ransom, as well as one count of aggravated assault and one count of manslaughter. He is scheduled to appear in a Brampton court Wednesday.
Police said they made the arrest following tips from the community.
Han's body was found buried in the basement of a Markham home earlier this month.
Police had been searching for Jianguo (Tony) Han since Jan. 20, when he was reported missing along with Xiu Jun Fei.
Investigators determined the pair had been kidnapped. Fei was found unharmed six days later.
Han was a well-known real estate agent, dealing in high-end properties and often represented clients in the Mandarin-language community.
Three men were charged last week with manslaughter in connection with Han's death. The men, as well as a fourth man, have also been charged with aggravated assault and two counts of kidnapping with intent to hold for ransom.
An arrest warrant is outstanding for Guo Wei Wu, 43, who is believed to be in Vancouver. He is described as Asian, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 170 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes.
