A woman is dead and a man is in custody following a homicide at a Stoney Creek apartment.
Hamilton police say the man called 9-1-1 just after 11 o’clock last night from the parking lot of Eastgate Square and said he had just killed a woman.
Officers were dispatched to the apartment on Riverdale Avenue, just west of Centennial Parkway, where they found the woman’s body.
Detective Sergeant Paul Hamilton says the victim was in her 30s and was not related to the suspect, but she did know him.
Hamilton says the cause of death has not been determined and a post mortem will be done.
35-year-old Dalibor Klaric of Stoney Creek is charged with first degree murder.
The victim’s name has not yet been released.
Police are talking to other tenants of the building and are gathering evidence at the scene.
