A West Vancouver man already charged with interference of a dead body is now facing an additional charge of second degree murder.
54 year old Li Zhao is accused in the suspicious death of a 42 year old man in the British Properties.
Reports indicate Zhao is accused of cutting up the dead body.
Police will only say the accused and victim were known to each other.
Investigators responded to 911 calls about a “violent confrontation” at the home on the 900 block of King Georges Way late on Saturday night.
They say forensic investigators have now finished their work at the residence.
He remains in custody until his next court appearance on May 11.
