A Sylvan Lake man charged with murdering his wife was back in court Friday.
Satnam Singh Sandhu, 41, appeared in person in Red Deer provincial court wearing blue Red Deer remand centre coveralls. His teen son was among a small group who watched from the gallery, and a Punjabi interpreter translated the proceedings.
Sandhu has been charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder and aggravated assault.
Sylvan Lake RCMP said they were called to a local home at about 10 a.m. on Sept. 11 and found Sandhu’s wife, Kulvinder Sandhu, badly injured.
Satnam Sandhu was arrested at the scene.
Kulvinder Sandhu, 36, died in hospital Sept. 14.
Red Deer lawyer Robin Snider appeared on behalf of Sandhu’s Edmonton lawyer, Danielle Boisvert, during Friday’s short appearance.
Snider said the defence had not yet received all of the disclosure, which includes information from the police investigation, including evidence.
The case was adjourned until Jan. 22, when Sandhu will appear via closed-circuit TV.
