Trial ordered for Surrey man accused of murdering wife

A Surrey man has been ordered to stand trial in connection with the alleged murder of his wife last year.

Tejinder Kaur Dhanoa, 32, was initially reported missing in early January, 2010.

The police investigation led to a home in the 13000 block of English Place in the Newton area, not far from Kwantlen Polytechnic University. The woman was found dead at the home.

Kamaljit Singh Dhanoa, 33, was arrested shortly after and charged with second-degree murder. At the time, police said it was a case of a domestic dispute that turned violent.

The trial was ordered following a preliminary hearing of the evidence in Surrey Provincial Court that concluded last week.

The case will be heard in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. A hearing to set the trial schedule is slated for March 10.
