A 32-year-old man is facing a first-degree murder charge after a man was found dead with obvious signs of trauma in an Oshawa residence on Friday.
At around 9:45 a.m., Durham Regional Police said members of the Central East Division responded to a wellness check at an address on Drew Street.
When they arrived, they found a male without vital signs, suffering from significant trauma.
He was pronounced deceased.
A suspect was arrested at the scene. Justin Steeves, of Oshawa, has been charged with first-degree murder.
The coroner ordered an autopsy to identify the victim, which is now known to investigators. However, they are waiting for the completion of a post-mortem examination before releasing more information.
