Etobicoke man charged with 1st-degree murder after wife dies in hospital | CBC News

Toronto police have upgraded a charge against a 48-year-old man to first-degree murder following the death last week of a woman who was injured in late September.

Police say they responded to a call near Gamma Street and Valermo Drive, near Brown’s Line and the Gardiner Expressway, in Etobicoke at approximately 3 a.m. on Sept. 25. 

Officers found a woman near the roadway with serious injuries and she was transported to hospital. She was identified as 43-year-old Katherine Zollerano.

Police said her husband was charged with a number of offences, including attempted murder. Police have confirmed the couple’s relationship to CBC News and that the latter charge against the husband was upgraded to first-degree murder after Zollerano died on Nov. 2. 

The accused is scheduled to appear at Toronto West Courts on Nov. 8 at 10 a.m. 

Police are asking anyone with more information to call them at 416-808-7400, or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), or at www.222tips.com.
