A suspect is in custody following a homicide in Ramara Township Saturday (Feb. 13) night.

According to the OPP, police and paramedics were called to a home on Monck Road around 11:30 p.m.

“Upon arrival, officers located two victims inside a residence. One of the victims, an adult female, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The second victim, an adult male, was injured and transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries,” reads a media release.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday (Feb. 16).
