A 26-year old Guelph man is in custody, with a bail hearing set for Friday in connection to Guelph’s first homicide of 2017.
Jacob Roncato was arrested by City Police just before 6:30 am yesterday morning on a Guelph Transit bus.
Police say they found the body of his mother, 54-year-old Mirella Roncato inside her Hasler Crescent home shortly after midnight, following an assistance call.
Police continue to investigate. Few additional details will be made public as a publication ban on evidence in the case is now in place.
