    " Police continue to investigate whether a random home invasion may have been what led to the murder of an 82-year-old woman inside her Scarborough home.

    Stella Tetson was found in her home on Elfreda Boulevard, in the Birchmount Road and St. Clair Avenue area, at around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday."

    "Officers responded to a call for unknown trouble at 68 Elfreda Blvd., in the Birchmount Road and St. Clair Avenue West area, on Wednesday afternoon. Inside, they found the victim dead and her body showed "obvious signs of trauma," according to homicide Det. Shannon Dawson.

    Police are treating her death as a homicide.

    The victim also appears to have been robbed, Dawson told reporters outside the victim's home on Thursday afternoon. Investigators have confirmed that one item was removed from the home and believe that other items were also taken.

    Dawson would not offer specifics about the items.

    Dawson described the victim as "a vibrant 82-year-old" who was "an important part of this community." She was well-known to neighbours, and was often seen gardening outside her home, she said"


    "She characterized the incident as "random," and advised residents to have "heightened awareness of their surroundings."

    "A 21-year-old man has been arrested in the death of "vibrant" 82-year-old Stella Tetsos, who was found dead inside her Scarborough home on Wednesday.

    Sinbad King Simba Marshall was arrested last night and charged with second-degree murder and break and enter.

    Marshall appeared in Toronto court Friday morning and has been remanded in custody until Nov. 25.

    Peter Tsirlis, Tetsos's nephew, said his aunt was a beloved member of his family who leaves behind two adult children and many grandchildren".

    "Man accused in murder of elderly woman was on probation"

    "Police say Marshall was arrested in connection with a break-and-enter in the same area in 2013 that left the homeowner with serious injuries.

    According to courts records, on June 14 of that year, Marshall was accused of assaulting and robbing a woman at a home in the Birchmount and Danforth area.

    Of the 12 charges he faced, Marshall was convicted of aggravated assault and breaching a probation order. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail and three years probation, but got credit for serving 10 months in pretrial custody.

    Tetsos’ nephew, Peter Tsirlis, who was in court on Friday along with the victim’s sister-in-law Anna Kotsopoulos, said punishment was not enough for Marshall since he is accused of re-offending.

    Kotsopoulos was overcome with grief as she described what it was like to see the accused.

    I don’t think she was even 80 pounds. To see that guy there, so strong, it’s devastating. And I had to come to see what he looked like. Poor lady, I can’t imagine. It shouldn’t have happened,” she said."
