Second Man Charged in Dulnuan Murder

From the Globe and Mail:
A second man has been arrested in connection with the killing of a housekeeper at a Mississauga mansion in October. Peel police laid murder charges on Tuesday against a labourer who was doing construction work at the sprawling home where the housekeeper was killed.

Fabian Loayza-Penaloza, a 35-year-old Canadian citizen who came to Canada from Ecuador in 1994, was arrested by Peel Regional Police and appeared briefly at a Brampton courthouse yesterday.

Mr. Loayza-Penaloza is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the slaying of 27-year-old Jocelyn Dulnuan, who was found dead at the multimillion-dollar home where she worked. Mr. Loayza-Penaloza’s arrest came after Peel police arrested 35-year-old Cristian Figueroa, another Equador-born general labourer, and charged him with first-degree murder.

Police are keeping tight-lipped about the details of the slaying. However, they suggest that Mr. Loayza-Penaloza allegedly gained insider knowledge of the people and belongings in the home on which he was hired to do construction work.
