Toronto police were called to a home in the Danforth Road and Kennedy Road area last Wednesday.
Friends had not heard from Scott Savoy for several days and decided to check on his well-being.
They found him dead inside his home.
Police were called to the scene at 1:50 p.m. that day.
A post-mortem examination determined Savoy, 48, died of blunt-force trauma.
On Monday, police arrested 41-year-old Jason Andrew Boucher.
Boucher is charged with second-degree murder in Savoy's death.
The accused is due to appear in court on Tuesday.
Savoy's death is the fifth homicide police have investigated in Toronto this year.
