Charges laid in murders of New Westminster escorts, Delta man

Charges have been laid against 32-year-old Sarbjit Bains in connection to three murders, including the deaths of two New Westminster escorts in August.

Forty-five-year-old Jill Lyons and 48-year-old Karen Nabors were found dead in separate units of the same New Westminster apartment complex, in the 200 block of 11th Street, just under two weeks apart.

Bains has also been charged in the death of 29-year-old Delta resident Amritpal Saran.

Saran's badly burned body was found on Colebrook Road in Surrey last February. Another woman, Evelina Urbaniak, has been charged as an accessory after the fact to murder, as well as interference with a dead body in the case of Saran.
