Vernon murder case pre-trial continues

A publication ban covers all information discussed during the hearing

Paramjit Singh Bogarh was not in court as defence lawyer Russ Chamberlain and Crown prosecutor Ann Katrine Saettler met in Vernon Supreme Court for further pre-trial discussions Tuesday.

Bogarh is charged with one count of first-degree murder and one count of conspiring to commit murder relating to the 1986 New Year’s Eve death of his then spouse Saminder Kaur Bogarh.

Bail was denied by Justice Frank Cole in June and Bogarh remains in custody. None of the charges against him have been proven in court.
