Man arrested for murder at construction site


CALGARY - The suspect arrested for the 2010 murder of a Calgary construction painter was a long-time acquaintance of his alleged victim, city police said Friday.

On Thursday, police in Vancouver charged Branko Grgic, 48, with second-degree murder in the death of Anto Slisko, 58.

The father of four was found dead on June 3, 2010 by homebuyers checking on an unoccupied residence, said Staff Sgt. Doug Andrus.

"A disagreement between two acquaintances escalated into a violent confrontation," said Andrus.

"They knew each other for an extended period of time."
Slisko, who'd been working as a painter at the home under construction, was killed by a blunt instrument that hasn't been found, said Andrus.

Grgic was not employed at that work site and Andrus said wouldn't say why he was allegedly there or what the dispute was about.

Andrus didn't know when Grgic will be brought back to Calgary.
