Man charged with second-degree murder in what police are calling a ‘domestic violence related homicide’

Sukhvir Badhesa faces charges of second-degree murder, aggravated assault and uttering threats after one woman hospitalized, another dead.

A man has been arrested by the Surrey RCMP in connection with a woman's murder early Sunday.

Police have charged 39-year-old Sukhvir Badhesa with second-degree murder after a woman died in a Surrey home Sunday.

Police are calling this a “domestic violence related homicide.”

Two women were found hurt at the home, in the 10000-block of 128A Street, just before 6 a.m. Sunday after a resident reported hearing a fight.

Badhesa was related to both women, police say.

A 35-year-old woman was treated in hospital and survived but a 61-year-old woman died at the scene.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was called in Sunday and announced charges Monday.

Badhesa faces several charges including second-degree murder, aggravated assault and uttering threats.

“IHIT was able to move very quickly through the initial stages of this investigation as a result of the quick work of Surrey RCMP in identifying what can be described as a domestic violence related homicide,” said Sgt. Stephanie Ashton of IHIT.

Badhesa was due in Surrey Provincial Court at 1:30 p.m. Monday.
