Peel police have arrested a suspect in connection to a Mississauga apartment fire Friday.

Authorities suspected the fire was suspicious when they found the lifeless body of a 40-year-old man inside the burning home.

On Saturday, an autopsy revealed the man, identified as Randall Hill, died as a result of a stab wound to his torso.

A 35-year-old suspect, Jody Jason Vanderburg was arrested on Sunday and charged with second-degree murder.

He is expected to make an appearance at a Brampton court on Monday.
