IHIT's Corporal Adam MacIntosh says the homicide team is pleased to be announcing the arrest and second-degree murder charge only a few days into the investigation.

However, he says they also recognize the tragedy of a family losing a wife and mother and the daughter being charged with the murder.

Gloria Zerbinos remains in custody and will make a first court appearance on Tuesday.
