RCMP in Saskatchewan say a teen wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in a homicide west of Toronto has been taken into custody.
According to Peel Regional Police in Ontario, a second-degree warrant was issued for the 17-year-old in relation to a fatal stabbing at a Mississauga, Ont., home on May 26.
Nineteen-year-old Daniel Smith of Mississauga died of his injuries after being rushed to hospital.
