Homicide investigators have announced new charges against two of four men accused of killing an Abbotsford woman four years ago.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team announced Wednesday that a first-degree murder charge has been laid against Sukhpal Johal, 26.

The Surrey man was charged last month with conspiracy and accessory after the fact in the murder of Kulwinder Gill, who was run down by a pickup truck on Townshipline Road in Abbotsford in 2009.

A new charge of accessory after the fact was also laid against Jaspreet Singh Sohi, 28, of Surrey. Sohi was already charged with first-degree murder.

The pair are accused of killing Gill, 42, the mother of two children.

Also charged with first-degree murder were Gill’s husband Iqbal Singh Gill, 49, of Abbotsford and Gurpreet Singh Atwal, 26, of Abbotsford.

The investigation began April 27, 2009 after Abbotsford police responded to a report of a woman struck by a hit-and-run vehicle.

IHIT was called in after evidence indicated foul play was involved.

Gill and her husband were part-owners of a home on Siskin Drive in Abbotsford that was used as a marijuana grow-op from 2003 to 2011, according to court documents filed in B.C. Supreme Court in 2011.

The house was seized under the province’s civil forfeiture act.
