Suspect in Volpi murder arrested in Toronto

The lone suspect in the Brandon Volpi homicide investigation has been arrested, according to Ottawa Police.

A Canada-wide arrest warrant was issued for 18-year-old Devontay Hackett June 10.

Constable Chuck Benoit with Ottawa Police says Hackett was arrested in Toronto Friday afternoon, but was unable to provide details as to who Hackett was staying with or exactly where in Toronto he was at the time of the arrest.

Volpi, 18, was stabbed to death outside a prom party at a downtown hotel June 7.  His death was Ottawa's third homicide of 2014.

Hackett is expected to appear in court on Saturday.
