A second person has been charged in relation to the killing of a 19-year-old girl in South Surrey almost two years ago.
Manjit Kaur Deo has been charged with accessory after the fact to the murder of Bhavkiram Dhesi in August, 2017.
Twenty-one-year-old Harjot Deo, Dhesi’s boyfriend, was charged with second-degree murder in relation her killing.
Manjit Kaur Deo, 53, is the mother of Harjot Deo.
Dhesi’s body was found in a burned vehicle, near 187 Street and 24 Avenue in South Surrey in August, 2017.
Last December, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) appealed to the public to help identify two vehicles believed at the time to be involved in the homicide. They were a dark grey Audi Q7 and dark grey Dodge Ram Truck.
RCMP Supt. Donna Richardson said last week IHIT is wanting to speak to the driver of the other vehicle.
Dhesi’s younger sister Anjali Dhesi also appealed to the public at the time, asking for anyone with information about the homicide to come forward.
“Our broken hearts will never heal, and we have no answers as to why this happened to her,” Anjali said. “Kiran made our family whole and gave our lives meaning. “She didn’t deserve this but she deserves justice.”
Harjot Deo is schedule to appear in Surrey Provincial Court on May 27, while Manjit Deo is expected to appear in court Thursday, May 23.
