A second man from the Toronto area is facing charges of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Lynda Marques, a London nurse shot in her driveway last fall.
London police said Osman Ali Afandy, 23, was arrested in Regina, Saskatchewan, Wednesday and charged with the alleged crime.
Police believe he is the individual in a black tracksuit caught on security camera footage and released to the public in late April. Police also alleged he was the driver of a grey Ford Fusion connected to the homicide.
That vehicle was seen travelling with a black Volkswagen Jetta that was outside Marques’ home and was later found abandoned.
Marques was shot on Sept. 10, 2021, at about 7:50 p.m. as she arrived at her home on Wateroak Drive in north London’s Fox Hollow neighbourhood.
Police also charged Ammar Patel, 18, with first-degree murder in April. He was facing previous drug trafficking charges laid by the Toronto police.
Patel is scheduled to appear in court in June. Afandy makes his first appearance in a London court on Friday.
Police continue to investigate the homicide and are appealing to the public to come forward with any new information.
