The accused has been denied bail.
24-year-old Houssein Hassan, from Toronto, has been transported to Sault Ste. Marie to face a first-degree murder charge.
Hassan is accused of killing 32-year-old Devin Collin of Sudbury, whose body was found in a bush just outside of Wawa 12 days after being reported missing.
The accused arrived by plane Tuesday evening and was escorted by Ontario Provincial Police officers while wearing arm and leg shackles.
He is scheduled to appear in bail court Wednesday morning.
A second man, a 22-year-old from Mississauga, is charged with being an accessory to murder after the fact.
CTV Northern Ontario will continue to follow the story and provide more details as the story develops.
Ontario Provincial Police say two men from the Greater Toronto Area have been charged in connection to the murder of a missing Sudbury man.
The human remains found on Highway 17, south of Wawa in northern Ontario, back in June were finally identified last month.
Now, two men in their 20s face charges. One is charged with first-degree murder, while the other is charged with being an accessory to murder after the fact.
The victim, 32-year-old Devin Collin of Sudbury, was last seen in Wawa on May 29 and was reported missing on June 17.
A post-mortem revealed Collin was shot, resulting in the investigation turning to a homicide case.
Police are asking anyone with information related to this incident to contact them or Crime Stoppers.
