Kamikar Singh Dhillon stood silently in the prisoner’s dock at Brampton court yesterday, listening to a Punjabi interpreter as he was remanded in custody, charged with first-degree murder in the New Year’s Day slaying of his daughter-in-law.
The 47-year-old Malton man was arrested Tuesday, just days after he was released from hospital, claiming he’d been wounded in the same knife attack that claimed the life of Amandeep Kaur Dhillon, 22.
He had quickly gone from victim to murder suspect in the eyes of Peel homicide detectives.
Police now think the neck wounds he suffered on Jan. 1 were self-inflicted.
Dhillon’s lawyer, Suny Virk, told court his client had suffered “substantial injuries” to his neck and would require medical treatment in jail. Dhillon was ordered to return to court on Jan. 21. He must make application to Superior Court to attempt a release on bail.
