There was a summer wedding. Then in September, the newlyweds bought their first home. They were about to host their first Christmas — and just beginning to lay the foundation of the rest of their lives.

But last Friday, Rosemarie Junor was stabbed in a PATH Shoppers Drug Mart, just steps from where she worked, in what appears to have been a random attack.

Junor died of her injuries in hospital Wednesday night. On Thursday, Toronto police identified the 28-year-old, known to friends as Kim.

Rohinie Bisesar, 40, was arrested Tuesday afternoon in connection with the attack and initially charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon. Junor was listed in “grave” condition in hospital for several days before succumbing to her injuries at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

The homicide unit has now taken over the investigation, and charges against Bisesar have been upgraded to second-degree murder. Her next court appearance is scheduled for Friday morning.

Born in Trinidad to a family of South Asian descent, Junor was the youngest of four siblings and lived in Canada for more than 20 years. Her 44-year-old brother described her as “full of life” and “outgoing” — a young woman who poured that energy into soccer and South Indian dance.
