A 49-year-old London man is now charged with murder after a woman was stabbed to death early Wednesday morning.
Police were called to an apartment in a building at 1825 Whitney St. near Avondale Rd. around 3am Wednesday where they found 50-year-old Suzan Aisha Jacob suffering from stab wounds. She was taken to the London Health Sciences Centre and later died.
Juma Kuol was arrested at the scene and is now charged with second-degree murder. Investigators say the pair were known to each other and considered themselves friends. They were not in a domestic relationship.
This is London's fifth homicide and second fatal stabbing of 2015.
