Sylvan Lake man charged with second-degree murder makes court appearance

Accused remains in custody

A Sylvan Lake man accused of killing his wife will return to court in January for an anticipated resolution.

Satnam Singh Sandhu, 42, was charged with second-degree murder following the death of his wife, Kulvinder Sandhu, on Sept. 14, 2019.

On Monday, he appeared in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench via closed circuit television from Edmonton Remand Centre to set the Jan. 12 resolution date.

A preliminary hearing was to be held last month to determine if there was enough evidence to take a case to trial.
