Aloy Onochie identified as homicide victim, son charged in death
Victim had suffered 'blunt-force trauma injuries' to his body, police say
A 61-year-old Toronto man has been identified as the victim in the city's latest homicide and his 18-year-old son has been charged in his death.
Toronto police were called to a Pemberton Avenue condo building on Saturday night in the Yonge Street and Finch Avenue area, where they found a man dead.
On Sunday afternoon, Det. Rob North said investigators identified the body as 61-year-old Aloy Onochie.
His son, 18-year-old Uchenna Onochie, now faces a charge of second-degree murder and is due to appear in court on Monday.
North said police had attended two locations in the Yonge Street and Finch Avenue area on Saturday night.
The first scene they attended was at Finch subway station, where North said they found a male "suffering from apparent self-inflicted wounds."
North said police negotiated a peaceful surrender with that individual and he was taken into custody.
Next, police went to the building where they found Aloy Onochie. North said the victim was found suffering from "blunt-force trauma injuries to his body."
North said both the victim and his son lived at the condo building where Aloy Onochie was found.
The detective said he would not comment on any alleged motive in the homicide.
