BC boyfriend killed his girlfriend:
A BC man indicted of slaughtering his 19-year-old girlfriend has entered a guilty plea.
Harjot Singh Deo asserted guilty Tuesday to manslaughter with a gun and indignity to human remains in the 2017 killing of his girlfriend, Kiran Dhesi.
Dhesi’s body was discovered in August of that year inside a burned-out car in Surrey, B.C. At the time, she was a student at Kwantlen Polytechnic University.
A probe by killing investigators directed them to Deo, captured at the Vancouver International Airport in 2019 and apprehended with second-degree killing.
Police also alleged that after the slaying, he had help, which ultimately resulted in indictments against four family members.
Deo’s mom, Manjit Kaur Deo, begged guilty to block in May 2021 and was handed a conditional discharge and 12 months probation. His sister, Inderdeep Kaur Deo, had been arrested with addition after the truth, but the charge stayed.
His brother, Gurvinder Deo, and a family, Talwinder Khun Khun, were accused of addition after the fact and indecently interfering with human remains.
Harjot Singh Deo will be back in court on Feb. 23 to select a date for his sentencing on the killing conviction.
Gurvinder Deo and Talwinder Khun Khun will also court the exact day to fix a date for their trial.
