Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing a seventh charge of first-degree murder.

McArthur, wearing an orange prison jump suit, appeared by video in a Toronto courtroom Wednesday morning to be charged with first-degree murder in the case of Abdulbasir Faizi, an Afghan immigrant who went missing in 2010.

The news conference where Toronto Police will be giving out the details of the investigation has been scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Hours before that Bruce McArthur will be appearing in a Toronto court by video. He worked as an assistant machine operator at a now defunct, printing company in Mississauga. Idsinga said they have been able to obtain "quite a few exhibits" from the property and he expects they will be there for another couple of weeks. It closed after 18 months as it did not establish the whereabouts of the missing men or resolve the circumstances on their disappearances, police said. He's accused of preying on men in the LGBTQ community who hung out in the downtown Gay Village.

Police have recovered the remains of seven people and have thus far identified three men: Andrew Kinsman, 49, Soroush Mahmudi, 50, and Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40. The Wednesday's charge brings the total to seven, but police do not rule out more charges as investigation progresses.

"I can now add that the pathologists have identified the remains of Selim Esen, Dean Lisowick, and Abdulbasir Faizi", Idsinga said. They say he targeted men he met through dating apps that cater to gay men, meeting them at bars in the Gay Village area of Toronto, as well as male prostitutes.

Forensics officers have continued to work at McArthur's apartment since his January arrest.

Many of McArthur's alleged victims were the subject of two previous police probes into the disappearances of men from the city's gay village.
