A man arrested in connection with the death of a Toronto-area executive bred dogs for the victim before he was fatally shot.

Boris Panovski, 70, has been charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder after his arrest on Sunday.

The Scarborough man was arrested at Pearson International Airport just days after a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest.

Panovski was arrested two weeks after Donato Frigo and his wife, Eva, were shot while training their hunting dogs near the Hullet Wildlife Conservation Area, near Clinton, Ont.

Police say a male approached the couple in the rural area on Saturday, Sept. 13, shot them, and then fled the scene.

Frigo, 70, died of his injuries. His wife was wounded, but managed to escape on horseback.

At a news conference last Friday, OPP said a number of exhibits were seized in search warrants that were conducted in Scarborough in connection with the murder investigation. Police did not elaborate on what types of items were seized.

Frigo was the vice-president of the Hady Construction Group, located in Etobicoke, Ont. His friends described him as an avid outdoorsman and hunter.

He was remembered Monday morning at a funeral in St. Clare of Assisi Roman Catholic Church in Vaughan, Ont.

Police have previously said that Frigo and the suspect knew each other but did not elaborate on their relationship.

However, one of Panovski's former customers told The Canadian Press on Monday that the men had known each other for 20 years.

Frigo had bought hunting dogs from Panovski, fellow dog trainer Tim Tufts said. Tufts described Panovski as short tempered, saying that if his dogs didn't win competitions, Panovski would get angry at the owners.

Police in Waynesboro, Ga. told The Canadian Press that Panovski had been in some legal trouble while in the city known for bird dog championships in 2005.

He was charged for public indecency and pandering, after asking a waitress to have sex with him for money, police said. He went to court and paid a fine for the charge.
