NEWTON – Harbans Pandher has been charged with second-degree murder of his 64-year-old wife Jaswant Pandher.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken conduct of the investigation, in what appears to have been a domestic-related homicide in Newton.
Police were called to a home in the 6900-block of 152nd Street in Newton just after 1 p.m. Sunday.
Surrey RCMP found a woman deceased inside the home and suspected foul play. Soon after, IHIT was called in.
Pandher was arrested at the scene. "As this investigation is early the motive appears unclear but evidence thus far suggests this to be domestic related," said IHIT Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound in a statement.
Reports say witnesses saw a girl run outside yelling for help, claiming her grandmother had been killed.
