A young woman who died Saturday was strangled, an autopsy has revealed.
The 25-year-old was attacked in her basement apartment and police found her suffering from life-threatening injuries at the home on Clancy Drive, which is located in the Don Mills Road and Finch Avenue area.
Police said they were called to the home at around 2:20 p.m. Saturday.
The woman was rushed to hospital, but died of her injuries a short time later.
Police released her cause of death Monday after the autopsy had been completed.
Police said Sunday they had charged 18-year-old suspect Mohamed Adam Bharwani with first-degree murder in connection with her death. An officer at the scene Saturday said they took the person who called 911 into custody.
The woman has not yet been identified. Police have not said if or how the accused and the victim knew each other.
