Man arrested after woman falls 10 storeys to her death
Tenant who said he'd killed his wife asked to use the phone, apartment manager says
By Hayley MICK, Page A13
Apartment manager Myrna BAZSAY says she was in her office yesterday morning when a tenant barged in, saying he needed to call the police.
"Why?" she recalled asking as he grabbed her cellphone.
She said he replied: "I just killed my wife."
Sure that the friendly, easygoing young man she knew must be kidding, Ms. BAZSAY said: "What?"
Repeating he had killed his wife and appearing in shock, the tall, slender youth peeked through the glass front doors of the apartment at 111 Raglan Ave. near Bathurst Street and St. Clair Avenue West, and noticed a police cruiser, Ms. BAZSAY said.
She said he headed outside with his hands behind his back and surrendered to police, who had rushed to the scene after several 911 callers reported screams and a woman falling from the balcony of an apartment.
Police say a woman fell 10 storeys to her death shortly before 9: 20 a.m. She was identified by police as 19-year-old Seema BADHAN.
Homicide detectives said that her estranged husband had been arrested at the scene. Zohaib SHAUKAT, 18, was charged last night with first-degree murder and was to appear in court today.
Ms. BAZSAY said that Ms. BADHAN was a college student who had moved into the building about a year ago, sharing space with Mr. SHAUKAT, his mother and his 10-year-old sister. Ms. BAZSAY believed the couple had split up about two months ago, with Ms. BADHAN moving elsewhere.
A video camera showed the pretty young woman, who stood just over five feet tall and appeared to weigh about 100 pounds, entering the apartment lobby yesterday morning, Ms. BAZSAY said. She said she saw the body and it was the same woman.
Ms. BAZSAY said that Ms. BADHAN was quiet and friendly, and Mr. SHAUKAT is a "sweet young guy." He would often drop into her office with bagels from the Forest Hill café where he worked, or tease her about her smoking habit. His car had just been damaged to the tune of $10,000 in an accident and he was looking into leasing a new one, she said.
Tzvi SNIR, who owns What A Bagel at Spadina and Lonsdale Roads, said Mr. SHAUKAT was a hard worker. For the past two years, he worked six or seven days a week, starting at 6 a.m., he said.
He often chatted with customers or sang Pakistani songs as he swept the floors. But he was prone to angry outbursts.
"Once or twice he got really get angry on the phone," Mr. SNIR said, recalling how he would shout into his cellphone on the sidewalk outside the shop.
Mr. SHAUKAT complained periodically about his wife of two years, a student at Seneca College, Mr. SNIR said, adding: "I knew they had some problems but nothing major."
Mr. SHAUKAT told him about a split in April, but said that his wife moved back in last week, he said.
Yesterday at about 8: 30 a.m., Mr. SHAUKAT called his boss and said he was sick and would not be going to work. The incident at his apartment building occurred less than an hour later.
Violet BOTOS, 32, who lives directly below the couple's apartment, was watching television when she "heard the crying and then the scream," she said.
After running out to the balcony and peering over the ledge, she saw a body on a parking lot, just east of Bathurst Street. It remained there hours later, covered by an orange plastic sheet.
Homicide Detective Joel KULMATYCKI said police received a 911 call from the suspect where "some admissions were made."

James BURK/BURKE, Writer And Editor: (1917-2006)
Paralyzed by an auto accident in 1942, he survived to become one of Canada's longest-surviving paraplegics
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- James BURK/BURKE was 22 and only weeks from getting a pilot's licence when an accident left him paralyzed. The year was 1940 and Toronto's health system was ill equipped to deal with civilian paraplegics. Hospital authorities basically told him to "pray and die," he said later.
He spent long years in institutions before the availability of the personal collapsible wheelchair -- combined with his own willpower -- helped him start a new life on the outside. He worked as a freelance writer and editor, married radio and stage personality Laddie DENNIS, and authored two comic novels in the 1960s. He was to spend more than six decades in a wheelchair and was one of Canada's longest-surviving paraplegics.
"He never allowed himself to be shackled by remorse," says William GEISLER, one of the doctors who helped with his rehabilitation. "He didn't ruminate on what had been. He knew those emotions would sap him of the energy he required." Friends say he avoided talking about his handicap, had a strong sense of humour and was always willing to help others.
For a number of years, Mr. BURK/BURKE edited the Caliper, the journal of the Canadian Paraplegic Association. He also wrote Return to Action, a history of treatment programs for spinal-cord patients. But he never mentioned disabilities in his other writings, which included a physical fitness course, short stories, book reviews for The Globe and Mail and two novels.
Flee Seven Ways (1964) is the rollicking tale of a corrupt businessman. It was published in Britain, the U.S. and Germany to favourable reviews. "A very funny first novel," wrote The New York Times. The paper's Literary Supplement noted: "His novel is a complex construction, bravely undertaken and creditably carried out."
In The Firefly Hunt (1969), mischief and mayhem bedevil the hero after he inherits a castle from an eccentric uncle. Argosy magazine called it "a sparkling Roman-candle of a fantasy." Mr. BURK/BURKE drafted a third novel, but health problems halted completion.
Christened James KAPHALAKOS, he changed his last name to BURK/BURKE as a young man. He was the second of five sons of Panogiotis (Peter) KAPHALAKOS, a Greek immigrant who operated a Toronto coffee business, and his wife, Florence (née COCHRANE.) Young James excelled at school and in athletics but, because of his father's death in 1930, he abandoned his studies. To support his family, he graduated from high school and then went looking for whatever work he could find.
An avid weightlifter with a striking physique, he earned some income as a live model at the Ontario College of Art. But his main job in 1940 was on the bull gang at a paper mill. He was also taking flying lessons at the Toronto Island airport, but only when he had some extra money. That all changed when the car in which he was a passenger was involved in an accident. The impact broke his back and left him paralyzed from the mid-back down.
At the time, life expectancy for paraplegics was considered low. As a result, Mr. BURK/BURKE was given little more than food, a bed to lie in and drugs to fight off infection. In all, he spent seven years at a succession of Toronto hospitals. Later, he said he only talked about those missing years "to counter the canard" that he had spent them in jail.
He gave details of his dreary hospital years in lengthy interviews conducted in the early 1990s by Mary TREMBLAY, an associate professor of health sciences at McMaster University. She used his experiences in a series of academic papers on the evolution of Canada's treatment of spinal-cord injuries.
At Saint Michael's Hospital, nuns asked Mr. BURK/BURKE to accept his fate and make peace with God. "I somehow didn't feel like taking on the chore of dying at that moment," he told Ms. TREMBLAY. The Queen Elizabeth Hospital was "very restrictive" with few activities, but at Runnymede Hospital he found the staff to be more sympathetic. Somehow, he obtained a typewriter and took up writing. One of his first successes as a freelancer was a correspondence course on fitness that he sold through magazine ads.
His life changed dramatically in 1946 when he was visited by Dr. Al JOUSSE and John COUNSELL, a paraplegic veteran who had been injured at Dieppe. Along with neurosurgeon Doctor Harry BOTTERELL, they had helped set up Lyndhurst Lodge in Toronto as a centre for spinal-injury rehabilitation programs for veterans of the Second World War. As a deserving civilian, Mr. BURK/BURKE was squeezed into the program. He began travelling to Lyndhurst for physiotherapy twice a week. More importantly, he was given one of the Everest and Jennings folding, self-propelled wheelchairs that had provided freedom and hope to paraplegic veterans.
In 1948, he moved to the Young Men's Christian Association in downtown Toronto where he pursued his writing career. He wrote short stories and book reviews, and also worked as a copy editor. It was at the Young Men's Christian Association coffee bar that he met Laddie DENNIS, then a stage actress and radio announcer. She later appeared regularly on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television and became a travel writer. One friend called their romance "the love story of the century." Ms. DENNIS says she "made the first move" and was also the one who proposed. They were married in 1951 and spent their honeymoon in Mexico.
In 1955, they purchased a former five-car garage that once belonged to the historic Falcon Inn in Scarborough. The partly finished structure was considered a white elephant, but the couple turned it into a comfortable home where they often entertained 40 guests at a time.
In 1963, Mr. BURK/BURKE was invited to England to turn his first novel into a screenplay. The project fell through, but along the way he picked up an assignment to write the script for a British Broadcasting Corporation Radio play based on Nikolai Gogol's Diary of a Madman. It starred comedian Kenneth Williams.
Despite his handicap, Mr. BURK/BURKE drove a car, raked lawns, got in and out of a rowboat and even chopped wood.
Mary TREMBLAY started one interview saying she wanted to talk about Mr. BURK/BURKE's ideas about disability. His reply summed up his attitude: "I'm against it."
James BURK/BURKE was born in Toronto on September 16, 1917. He died in Toronto on October 15, 2006, of complications of paraplegia. He was 89. He leaves his wife, Laddie DENNIS, and brothers Paul and Peter KAPHALAKOS.
