UPDATE: Police have named Chungqi Jiang, a 40-year-old construction worker, as the man arrested in relation to Guang Hua Liu's murder. Jiang had been involved in a four-year relationship with Liu, police said at a press conference on Monday afternoon.

BRAMPTON, Ont. -- Police say they have made an arrest in the case of a single mother whose body parts were found scattered in Toronto area waterways.

Peel Regional Police have not released any details but have scheduled a news conference for noon Eastern Time.

Guang Hua Liu (GWANG-WAH-LOO), 41, was reported missing on Aug. 11, one day after her friends dropped her off in front of a now-defunct spa she used to own called Forget Me Not Health Centre in east Toronto.

On Aug. 15 Liu's right foot was found in the Credit River in Mississauga, Ont., about 45 kilometres west of her home.

Liu's head and hands were later discovered in the river in the Hewick Meadows Park area. Two calves, a thigh and an arm were found in West Highland Creek, just blocks from where she lived.

Forensic tests determined all the remains belonged to Liu, but police still do not know how she died. Investigators have said they do not believe there are other victims.

This is a developing story. More to come...
