Hamilton Police announced on Tuesday that the female suspect in the murder of 39-year-old Tyler Pratt has been returned to Canada.

Oliver Karafa and Yun (Lucy) Lu Li, who were wanted in an international manhunt, were arrested in the "party district" of Budapest, Hungary on June 12, reports CTV News.

The couple fled the country shortly after Pratt's murder and had been "actively evading police" for months. A 26-year-old female victim had also sustained serious injuries, from which she is still recovering.

Police had discovered Pratt and the injured female victim in the area of Arvin Avenue in Stoney Creek on the evening of February 28. Pratt was pronounced dead at the scene.

"Investigators flew to Hungary and returned to Canada with Li on Monday, July 12, 2021," police said in a statement, and 28-year-old Karafa "continues to fight the extradition process" in Hungary.

Li is set to appear in court on July 13.
