Surrey senior accused of killing wife ordered to stand trial

Harbans Pandher is charged with second-degree murder in 64-year-old woman's death last year.

A man accused of killing his wife in Surrey last year has been ordered to stand trial for her murder.

Harbans Pander was 67 when he was arrested and charged with second-degree murder last November after his 64-year-old wife was found dead in a home on 152 Street near 69 Avenue.

While a preliminary hearing of the evidence is often held at the provincial court level to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to proceed with a trial, no such hearing was requested in Pandher’s case.

The matter will now proceed to B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. A trial date has not been set.

During a court appearance late last year, he appeared somewhat frail, requiring an interpreter to listen to the proceedings.

His next court date is Nov. 12.
