Ottawa police have identified the man killed in a south Ottawa hotel Saturday night as Mohamad Mana, 30, and have issued a warrant for the arrest of a woman wanted for his murder.

The body of Mohamad Mana, 30, of Ottawa was found in a room at the Residence Inn by Marriott on Walkley Road near Bank Street around 11 p.m.

Police said they're looking for Crystal Bastien, 32, on a first-degree murder charge.

She is considered violent. A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for Bastien's arrest, but police believe she remains in Ottawa.

She's described as five-feet-two-inches tall and 135 pounds.

The accidental release of a detailed police report including the personal information of witnesses has sparked both an internal Ottawa police investigation and Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario investigation.

Nearly 200 recipients, including members of the media, received the report in an email.

Police later asked recipients to delete or destroy the document.
