No good deed

Bright lights, big city... gonna squash you like a bug.
-- TORONTO -- A 33-year-old man facing second-degree murder charges was arrested last night following the brutal death of a young Toronto mother this weekend.

Police had issued a Canada-wide warrant Sunday for Levi Samuel Aggek after the body of Spring Phillips, 26, was found in her East End apartment the previous afternoon.

Ms. Phillips had offered Mr. Aggek a place to sleep Saturday night, police said. He has spent much of his time sleeping in shelters since arriving in the city two to three months ago from the East Coast.
