A 22-year-old man has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with a man's death in the Plateau early Sunday morning.

Montreal police arrested a suspect late Sunday evening. On Monday afternoon, a spokesperson for Quebec's Crown prosecution office confirmed that Jayden Coon-Come is accused of murdering Vincent Bibeau Olaechaea.

The victim, a 33-year-old man, was found unconscious in an alley on Parc Avenue, not far from Mont-Royal Avenue, at 5 a.m. Sunday. Attempts by first responders to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

Police said there were marks of violence on his body, but they were not inflicted by a weapon.

His death marks the 10th homicide in Montreal so far this year.
