The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has made an arrest in a double homicide that happened just under a week ago in Coquitlam.
It involved the deaths of a 56 year old Coquitlam woman and an Israeli man who came to Canada just days before.
Sgt. Stephanie Ashton says 54 year old Maurio ‘Mo’ Saheli of Richmond faces two counts of first degree murder.
She says Saheli knew at least one of the victims.
“The suspect had been in a previous relationship with the female victim.”
Last Thursday afternoon, police were called to a home in the Westwood Plateau area in Coquitlam after reports of two people found dead in a residence.
Ashton says the homicides are not related to any other incidents.
Saheli will make his first court appearance tomorrow.
