Toronto - Canadian alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing an eighth murder charge.

Toronto police Detective Sgt. Hank Idsinga said Monday the 66-year-old landscaper has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam.

Idsinga says Kanagaratnam's remains were found at a home McArthur used as storage for his landscaping business. He said Kanagaratnam arrived from Sri Lanka in 2010 and was not on file as missing in Canada.

Investigators say he was identified after they released photographs of the man and appealed to the public for help.
