When officers arrived at the scene, they found an elderly woman unconscious and not breathing. She was suffering from “obvious signs of trauma,” police said.
The woman, who police have identified as Helen Fronczak, was pronounced dead at the scene.
A suspect identified as Toronto-resident Larry Fronczak, 80, has been charged in connection with the incident. He was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
