A mother who relocated to Canada seeking better medical care for her son was bludgeoned to death in a north-end Toronto apartment, a jury was told Tuesday.
Lucita Charles, 28, was found dead in June 2010. The St. Lucia native was the mother of Mateo, a young boy who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
Officers found Charles in her apartment with a passage from the bible stabbed into her chest with a knife. They say she was bludgeoned to death with a hammer.
