SURREY, B.C. -- The RCMP made two arrests on Friday in connection to the death of a young woman whose body was found in a burned-out vehicle in Surrey, B.C., two years ago.
Gurvinder Deo, 25, and Talwinder Khun Khun, 22, were arrested by the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team and charged with accessory after the fact to murder, as well as offering indignity to human remains.
A new charge of indignity to human remains has also been laid against 21-year-old Harjot Singh Deo, who was arrested and charged with second-degree murder in May.
Police say Harjot Singh Deo was in a romantic relationship with 19-year-old Kiran Dhesi, who received a life-saving kidney transplant six months before she was killed.
With the latest arrests, a total of five members of the same family have now been charged in connection to Dhesi's death.
Deo's mother, 53-year-old Manjit Kaur Deo, as well as his sister, 23-year-old Inderdeep Deo, were both arrested in May and charged with accessory after the fact to murder.
RCMP confirmed that newly arrested Gurvinder Deo is Harjot Singh Deo's brother and Talwinder Khun Khun is an extended family member, but police would not give details on how they're related.
