Suspect arrested in murder of Filipina in Toronto
TORONTO — Police arrested a suspect in the murder of a 41-year-old East York Filipino woman, who was killed in her bedroom by an intruder late last month.
Rhoderie Estrada, who worked as a nurse in a Toronto hospital, was found unresponsive in her bedroom after 2 a.m. on Saturday, May 26, suffering from “obvious signs of trauma.” The mother of three children later died of her injuries.
Detectives believe Estrada was killed by an unknown person who entered the home via a side window sometime after 10:30 p.m. the previous evening, reported the Toronto Sun.
Police arrested Yostin Murillo, 22, of no fixed address, who will be charged with first-degree murder. Police said there was no prior relationship between Murillo and the victim.
