Toronto police say a second woman is facing charges in connection with the death of a man whose body was found in an east-end park last summer.

George Fawell's body was found last August in Jimmie Simpson Park, near Queen Street East and Booth Avenue. Sources told the CBC at the time that the 24-year-old had his hands tied together and throat slashed.

Lead homicide investigator in the case, Det.-Sgt Gary Giroux described Fawell's injuries as among the worst he'd ever seen.

Last week, police arrested and charged 39-year-old Lori Ann Crook with first-degree murder and forcible confinement.

On Wednesday morning, police issued a news releasing saying that a second woman now faces charges.

Ashley Andrews, 28, is wanted on charges for accessory after the fact to murder, and two counts of attempting to obstruct justice.

It's unclear what relationship, if any, the two women had to Fawell.
