A London man has been charged with first-degree murder and committing an indignity to a body in the death of Paul Curry.

Shane Alan Wood, 37, had already been charged with arson and break and enter in connection with the fire.

Police say the committing an indignity to a body charge stems from the circumstances surrounding the deliberately set fire.

Curry, 50, was found dead following an early morning fire at 361 Manitoba Street on September 16th.

Police say the two men were known to each other.
