Brampton man given two concurrent life sentences in deaths of his wife, mother-in-law


A Brampton man was given two concurrent life sentences with no possibility of parole for 25 years, after he was found guilty of murdering his wife and mother-in-law.

Dalwinder Singh was convicted of the two murders which took place at Starhill Crescent in the City of Brampton earlier in 2018.

“On Friday, January 12, 2018, at 10:45 p.m., officers responded to a call at a residence on Starhill Crescent in the City of Brampton. Two victims, Baljit Thandi and her mother Avtar Kaur, were located inside the residence suffering from stab wounds. They died as a result of their injuries,” the Peel Regional Police said in a statement.

Dalwinder Singh, the husband of Baljit Thandi, was charged with two counts of First Degree Murder, the statement said, adding that at the conclusion of the trial, Baljit Thandi was sentenced to two concurrent life sentences, with no chance of parole for 25 years.

“While a conviction brings the court process to a close, the loss of Baljit and Avtar will forever leave a void in the lives of their family and friends,” said Nick Milinovich, Deputy Chief of Investigative and Emergency Services.

Milinovich further added “Preventing violent crime and intimate partner violence is a focus for Peel Regional Police. We will be steadfast in our commitment to help victims of crime”.
