A drug dealer was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing a prostitute because he believed that it will help advance his career as a hip hop artist, police in Canada said.

Ottawa police said that they have arrested 25-year-old Adrian Daou, after being accused of killing 36-year-old Jennifer Leigh Stewart, who was a drug addict and prostitute.

Daou was charged with one count of first-degree murder.

According to the police investigation, Daou worked as a dishwasher when he decided to kill a person with the hope that with the murder, he would be able to launch his career as a hip hop star.

Daou bought an ax, goggles, mask and gloves. Daou then contacted Stewart, under the guise of a false drug deal. Her dead body was discovered in a parking lot.

Daou was serving a prison sentence for an unrelated case when he told a guard that he wanted to confess to an unsolved murder.

Daou also confessed to another murder he did not commit.
