Police nab man accused of killing spouse

SURREY – A Surrey man accused of killing his spouse on Mother’s Day was picked up by police Tuesday while walking along Vancouver’s Granville Street.

 

Gordon Alexander David, 34, is charged with manslaughter and aggravated assault in connection with the death of 23-year-old Cady Quaw and an assault on another woman who police won’t identify. She’s reported to be in stable condition.

 

On Monday, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team issued a Canada-wide warrant for David, who spokesperson Sgt. Stephanie Ashton said has "an extensive history with police."

 

Surrey RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr said police have been to the home many times.

 

"We have been there for domestic violence for him and her. Our Domestic Violence Unit was very engaged with the couple."

 

Carr couldn’t say exactly how many times police had been to the residence, but said "it’s been ongoing since late last year."

 

He added David was out on conditions related to domestic violence at the time.

 

"There’s a history."
