The body of Paula Gallant, 36, a native of Glace Bay, was found in the trunk of her car in December 2005.

“No charges have been laid. The investigation is still ongoing, so we can’t release his name,” RCMP Cpl. Joe Taplin said Tuesday.

However, CBC News is reporting the man arrested is Gallant’s husband, Jason MacRae.

Taplin said the joint investigation, involving the Mounties and Halifax police, took a lot of effort.

“It’s been a very intensive and extensive investigation involving a lot of dedicated members that kept working at this file,” he said.
