York police continue to investigate after a woman was found dead and a man was taken into custody after an incident in Richmond Hill Wednesday night.

Constable Laura Nicolle says police were called to a home at Bond Crescent and King Road around 7:45 p.m.

“This was an unknown trouble call to a residence on Bond Crescent. When our officers arrived at the home, they located an adult female who was pronounced deceased at the scene and an adult male suspect was taken into custody and was also taken to hospital with injuries. At this point, it looks like it occurred inside the residence,” Nicolle says.

Police confirm they arrived to find a 41-year-old woman suffering from stab wounds.

The suspect, a 49-year-old man, has been charged with first-degree murder.

The couple’s four children, between the ages of nine and 19, were in the home at the time of the incident but they were not physically injured.

Anyone who has further information is asked to contact police.
