Canada-wide arrest warrant issued for murder suspect on lam since mid-January

MONTREAL - A Canada-wide arrest warrant has been issued for a man wanted in the murder of a Montreal woman.

Montreal police say Philippe Steele Morin is being sought on charges of second-degree murder in the slaying of Tricia Boisvert.

The 36-year-old Boisvert was killed in her Montreal apartment last month.

She was found six days later in a wooded area near Pontiac, a municipality in the Outaouais region in western Quebec.

The 30-year-old suspect is believed to be hiding out around the Ottawa area.

A Montreal charitable organization is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Steele Morin's arrest.

Police in Montreal say any information it receives will be treated confidentially.
