He's facing three charges.
45-year-old Kamaljit Arora, accused of killing two children, aged 11 and 13, in Laval, is set to appear in court on Thursday, October 20, after a delay due to his health, the Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales (DPCP) told MTL Blog.
He stands accused of two counts of first-degree murder as well as one count of assault for allegedly strangling one Rama Rani Arora, who reports have identified as his partner, according to documents shared by the DPCP.
Laval police have yet to publicly release the causes of death or details about events surrounding the murders, but Arora's court appearance may reveal additional information. Multiple sources, including Le Devoir, have reported that it was Arora's oldest daughter, 18, who alerted a neighbour to the tragic incident.
Arora's health condition has not been made public.
