(Richey-Charges)

A man accused of killing a young woman in Toronto's gay village last year has seen his charge upgraded to first-degree murder.

Police initially charged 21-year-old Kalen Schlatter with second-degree murder last month in the death of Tess Richey, who investigators say died of "neck compression."

The 22-year-old was reported missing in November after a night out with a friend.

Her mother found Richey's body four days later in a stairwell at the back of an alley, just steps from where she was last seen alive. (The Canadian Press)

Police have named Dhami as one of three suspects in the beating, which took place last week at a bus terminal in Mississauga.

A video of the attack released by police shows the victim sitting at the bottom of a stairwell putting on roller blades, when three men approach from behind and began punching and kicking him. (The Canadian Press)
