York regional police say a second suspect has been charged in the death of a Toronto man whose body was found in a vehicle in Richmond Hill.

Investigators say the body of 22-year-old Matthew Arcara was found last Thursday morning following a tip from Toronto police regarding a home invasion.

Investigators said they believed Arcara was killed and two suspects then went to a Toronto home associated with the victim.

They said at that location, two men were tied up and robbed, and a dog was killed.

Arjuna Paramsothy, 31, of Newmarket, was arrested later that day and charged first-degree murder, two counts each of robbery using a firearm and forcible confinement, and single counts of disguise with intent and killing an animal.

Investigators say Brandon Hudson, 22, of Richmond Hill, has been arrested and is facing identical charges.

Police say he is being held in custody pending a court appearance on June 1.
