A Mississauga man, accused of killing his wife and then leaving her body in a van parked in a stranger’s driveway, is now expected to be declared not criminally responsible, a court heard Thursday.
Crown Mara Basso told a Brampton court she was consenting to the application filed by Shafqat Nagra’s lawyer Carol Letman.
Justice Bruce Durno will hear submissions March 4.
Nagra, who is currently in custody behind bars, would then be detained indefinitely in a hospital.
Nagra, 41, is charged with first degree murder in the Jan. 11, 2007 slaying of his wife and mother of four, Nabila Asifa, 36.
Her body was found inside a minivan by Peel Police parked in a driveway of a Brampton home.
Police said at the time the woman had been killed at her home on Ashprior Ave. In Mississauga.
The accused later went to a nearby police station claiming he had killed his wife.
