A Toronto police officer, who allegedly failed to properly investigate and report a call for help in a domestic violence case, faces a number of charges after a young woman was shot and killed three days later.
23-year-old Daniella Mallia was found in an underground parking garage last August.
She had reported to police that her ex-boyfriend, who’s now facing a first-degree murder charge, had been sending her threatening and harassing text messages.
Constable Anson Alfonso faces several Police Act charges, including deceit, neglect of duty and making false or misleading statements.
Police tribunal documents say the officer spoke with the victim’s ex-boyfriend for only three minutes and did nothing to help her despite her pleas for help.
