Man wanted for 1998 U.S. killing arrested in Toronto
Toronto police say a drunk driving investigation led to the arrest of an international fugitive wanted in a gruesome Philadelphia murder more than a decade ago.
Police say 35-year-old Kai-Guo Huang was originally arrested Aug. 7 in the city's northeast and charged with driving over the legal blood-alcohol limit.
He was released on a promise to appear in court.
Police say Huang gave them a false name, identifying himself as Yu Chen.
Officers later discovered his true identity and learned he was wanted in Philadelphia on charges of murder, conspiracy, possession of an instrument of crime and abuse of a corpse.
The charges stem from the 1998 slaying and dismemberment of a man.
Philadelphia police, the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Federal Investigations Bureau and Canada's border services worked with Toronto investigators to arrest Huang a second time on Friday.
He is being held for possible extradition.
