More than a year after Lakhwinder Singh Bal was killed in a fight in Surrey, B.C., father and son were charged with his murder.
Bal, 48, died on August 19, 2018 after getting into a fight in the alley next to a McDonald's parking lot near Prince Charles Boulevard and 96th Avenue.
On Friday, Gurmail Biring, 73, and his son Daljeet Biring, 42, were arrested and charged with second-degree murder in Bal's death, according to the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
"I am extremely proud of our investigators and policing partners for their tireless work on behalf of Mr. Lakhwinder Bal's family and the entire community," IHIT Supt. Dave Chauhan said in a press release.
At the time of Bal's death, investigators said the fatal fight broke out after a verbal disagreement.
Researchers say the homicide was not random or gang related. Both Birings appeared in B.C. provincial court on Monday.
