WATCH: Police confirm Bruce McArthur faces 7th murder charge as invesitgation expands
Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing a seventh murder charge.
The 66-year-old landscaper appeared by video in a Toronto courtroom this morning where the Crown said the new first-degree murder charge had been laid in the death of Abdulbasir Faizi.
McArthur has already been charged with the first-degree murder of six other men who have connections to the city's LGBTQ community.
Police have said they've recovered the remains of seven people from planter pots around a home in midtown Toronto where McArthur worked and stored his equipment.
Toronto police are expected to hold a news conference later today to provide an update on their investigation into McArthur.
McArthur was arrested in January and charged with the murders of Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen, who went missing from Toronto's gay village in 2017.
Later that month, McArthur was charged with the first-degree murder of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, and Dean Lisowick. In February, he was also charged in the death of Skandaraj Navaratnam.
