Police have arrested a Mississauga man in Athens, Greece, for the murder of a 49-year-old Toronto man almost two years ago.

On Tuesday, Toronto and Athens police, with the help of Interpol, arrested Mladen (Michael) Ivezic, 52. He was wanted for first-degree murder in the bludgeoning death of Allan Lanteigne.

Toronto police are now working on Ivezic’s extradition.

The arrest comes two months after Lanteigne’s husband Demitry Papasotiriou, 32, of Toronto, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in connection with the case.

Lanteigne was found dead in his home on Ossington Avenue, between Dupont and Bloor streets, on March 3, 2011.

Lanteigne was last seen alive when he left for his accounting job at the University of Toronto around 5 p.m. on March 2, 2011.

A friend called police after he hadn’t shown up for work, and they found his body the next day.

Officials say there were no signs of forced entry to his home, but there was trauma to the body.
