Toronto's latest murder

A mother has been charged with murdering her infant daughter after the youngster was found dead in the family's downtown Toronto home Saturday night.

Xin Lei Huang, who was just 40 days old, was found dead in a Manning Ave. home, near Bathurst St. and Queen St. W., where paramedics were responding to a call for a baby not breathing just before 9 p.m., Toronto Police homicide Det.-Sgt. Gary Grinton said Sunday.

UPDATE: Oops... spoke too soon
Three neighbours fighting about their dogs escalated into a man taking several knife wounds in the back early yesterday, police say.

This is just one tale from a weekend of violent mayhem around the GTA that left three people dead and several others seriously injured.
