Alleged Toronto serial killer Bruce McArthur has been charged with an eighth count of first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of missing men from the city’s gay community.
The new charge was announced in a Toronto courtroom on Monday. The accused appeared in court via video wearing an orange jumpsuit and showed no emotion. The latest victim has been identified as Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam. Authorities said he was allegedly murdered by McArthur sometime between Sept. 3 and Dec. 14, 2015.
The 66-year-old former landscaper is already facing seven charges of first-degree murder in the deaths of men linked to Toronto’s gay community.
