TORONTO -- A 23-year-old woman who was found strangled to death in North York over the weekend has been officially identified.

Police say the city’s latest murder victim is from the Republic of Zimbabwe.

Officers responded to a call for “unknown trouble” on Clancy Dr., southwest of Don Mills Rd. and Finch Ave. W., around 2:15 p.m. Saturday.

When officers arrived at the house, they found Nyumwai Caroline Mkurazhizha suffering from “apparent trauma to the body,” police said.

She was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

An autopsy later determined she died of “manual strangulation.”

Mohamed Adam Bharwani, 18, is charged with first-degree murder.

The Toronto man remains in custody.

Police have not yet said how the accused knew the victim but they continue to appeal for help from members of the public.
