Suspected killer Philippe Steele Morin arrested

A Gatineau man suspected of killing Tricia Boisvert and dumping her body in western Quebec was arrested Monday afternoon after evading police for weeks.

Philippe Steele Morin was stopped by police while travelling north on Highway 309 near Buckingham, police sources confirmed.

Morin faces a charge of second-degree murder of the 36-year-old Boisvert.

Boisvert's body was found in the woods northeast of the village of Quyon, Que., on Jan. 23. She had disappeared from her home in Montreal a week earlier.

Montreal police are leading the investigation.

More to come.
