Police and emergency medical services responded to a call just after midnight at an apartment building located on Broadview Avenue, near Mortimer Avenue.

A woman was found suffering from a single stab wound. She was rushed to hospital, but did not survive.

Police have a man in custody.

The suspect was arrested at the scene. He was later charged with second-degree murder.
