    Police say the suspect was first arrested for driving drunk in Toronto on August 7. An investigation later revealed he was using a fake name and wanted for murdering and dismembering a man in Philadelphia back in 1998, according to officials.

    Investigators say they arrested a fugitive in Toronto over a decade after he allegedly killed a man in Philadelphia.

    On Tuesday, August 7 at 1 a.m., police arrested Yu Chen, 30, for allegedly driving drunk. It happened on Sandhurst Circle in Toronto, Ontario, according to investigators.

    Chen was released from custody pending a future court date. Through further investigation however, police say they later learned that 30-year-old Yu Chen was actually 35-year-old Kai-Guo Huang. Police say Huang was a fugitive wanted for allegedly murdering Hoi Yang, 27, in the Chinatown section of Philadelphia back in 1998.

    Yang's dismembered and decapitated body was later found in two trash bins in Pemberton Township, NJ, according to the Daily News. After the murder and dismemberment, Huang used Yu Chen as a fake name, according to investigators.

    The TPS Fugitive Squad located and arrested Huang on Friday in Toronto. He is currently being held in custody, awaiting extradition proceedings. He is charged with murder, conspiracy, possession of an instrument of crime and abuse of a corpse.
