A second man was charged in the shooting death of Jieun Bae, a 23-year-old domestic worker who was fatally shot in a downtown Toronto housing complex on Sunday, police announced on Monday.
Armand Lazaro, 36, a city resident who is of Cuban descent, was charged with first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder. Police did not say why he was only charged with first-degree murder.
Anthony Joseph Stack, 39, of Surrey, British Columbia, was charged with first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.
A motive has not been established for Mr. Bae’s killing, but police have already said that it appears to be an act of domestic violence and, some witnesses reported that the suspect had yelled in Korean that he had only shot Ms. Bae because she was South Korean.
Police have declined to comment on Mr. Stack’s name or his relationship to Ms. Bae and the incident.
The killings in Toronto came just two days after two people were killed and seven wounded in an ambush at a funeral home in a northwestern town, and a day after a fatal home invasion in southern Ontario.
