Baldev Singh Kalsi, former president of a Sikh temple in Surrey, has been charged with the second-degree murder of his wife, Narinder Kaur Kalsi. Narinder, who suffered severe injuries in an alleged domestic dispute last week, died in a hospital after she was taken off life support on Sunday, police said.
Narinder was airlifted to hospital after she was found in severe medical distress at her house in Surrey on July 13. Her husband was arrested by the police on the spot and was originally charged with aggravated assault, and then attempted murder.
On Monday, police confirmed that charges against Baldev had been upgraded from attempted murder to second-degree murder following the death of his wife.
The news of Narinder's death was announced by the Gurdwara Sahib Brookside on Sunday afternoon on its Facebook page. Baldev was removed from the position of of the temple president earlier this month.
