Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur is now facing a seventh premeditated murder charge while the investigative team is combing through cold cases from mid-1970s to late 1990s in search other potential cases connected to the 66-year-old Toronto landscaper, Toronto police said Wednesday.

According to a source with knowledge of the probe, McArthur will face a seventh murder charge.

In August 2017, police launched Project Prism, which looked into the disappearances of Kinsman and Esen.

McArthur's next court date is April 25. McArthur was interviewed by police during that project but it was closed in 2014.
