A Mississauga man has been arrested on a warrant for second-degree murder, days after his wife was found dead.

The body of 40-year-old Aicha Saludares was found in a Mississauga apartment on Sept. 8.

Peel Regional Police soon after sought an arrest warrant for her 39-year-old husband, Nelson Tayongtong.

Tayongtong was arrested on Wednesday.

He is due to appear in a Brampton court today on a charge of second-degree murder.
