Woman charged with second-degree murder following Aurora house fire

Woman charged with second-degree murder following Aurora house fire A 36-year-old woman has been charged with second-degree murder after a body was found inside an Aurora house following a fire early Saturday, said York Regional Police. Just before 1 a.m. on Saturday, police and Central York Fire Services were called to a house on Edward Street. When they arrived, they found the house “fully engulfed” in flames, said police in a Sunday release. Shortly after 2 a.m., firefighters had knocked down the fire and were able to enter the home, where they located a body, believed to be an adult man. The coroner deemed the circumstances of the death to be suspicious. On Saturday, Melissa Galea, of Aurora, was arrested.

York Regional Police have released video appearing to show an impaired woman refusing to move her car out of a drive-thru in Vaughan, Ont.

Police said they were called to a restaurant in the area of Highway 7 and Keele Street a little after midnight on Friday for reports of a car stopped in the drive-thru.

The caller told police the driver hadn't ordered any food and didn't respond to the restaurant employee.

The officer then asked for her identification for the fifth time and the woman said she would give it to them once she got some food.

Before the officer arrested the driver, she admitted to driving the car into the drive-thru, but said she was not planning on driving anywhere further.

The 34-year-old woman from Toronto was charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle and blowing over 80.

This incident is one of the 26 impaired driving related criminal offenses over the long weekend.
