The suspect in the murder of 24-year-old nursery school teacher, Kayla Marie Cain-Solomon of Lowlands, Tobago, was arrested by police on Thursday after being on the run for almost a week.
The wanted man was found at 10 am in a forested area near Huntley River, Arnos Vale Road, Les Coteaux.
Police found the suspect severely dehydrated, hiding in a makeshift wooden shed.
He was taken to the Scarborough General Hospital where he received medical treatment under police guard.
Cain-Solomon, who is originally from Trinidad, was attacked with a hammer by a man known to her one week ago at about 8.20 am. She was at the home of a fellow school teacher in Lambeau Village, next to the Dorothy Moses Nursery School.
An autopsy performed by Dr Eslyn McDonald-Burris at the Scarborough General Hospital mortuary on Monday revealed that she died as a result of cranio cerebral injuries due to multiple blunt force trauma to the head.
Cain-Solomon is expected to be buried in Trinidad.
