The suspect, a 33-year-old, who was apparently the man's life partner, allegedly killed him and got rid of his body by stuffing it into the suitcase and putting it on a street corner. About 15 hours later, he turned himself in to police in Ottawa.

The body was first found when a passerby alerted police to a foot he saw protruding out of a suitcase left in the snow near a guest house.

Canadian police said the two lived near Ottawa and assessed that the murder took place in a hotel around Montreal following an argument.
