A man wanted in connection with a murder at CFB Trenton was arrested in Nova Scotia on Wednesday.

Marcus Wilson, 37, was picked up at a truck stop near Port Hawkesbury, N.S.

The Quinte West man is charged with killing James Read, 36, who was stabbed multiple times outside a home on the base over the weekend.

Read was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time after he was found.

Police initially believed Wilson was in the Belleville area and may have been heading to Hamilton.
