Quebec police announced they had arrested him in connection with the murder of a junior college student 22 years ago.

Ghislaine Potovin was found dead on April 28, 2000, in her apartment in Jonquieres, Quebec, about 215 kilometers north of Quebec City.

State police have announced that they have arrested 47-year-old Marc-André Glennon in connection with Potvin’s murder.

Glennon, of Granby, Quebec, east of Montreal, has also been charged with attempted murder and sexual assault in connection with the incident.

Police said an investigation revealed similarities to another case in Quebec City in 2000 in which a female student living alone was assaulted but survived.

State Police say Glennon will appear in court later today via video link.
