Police ID Mississauga, Ont., retail stabbing victim, say she was married to suspect

MISSISSAUGA, ONT. — Police say a woman who died in a stabbing at a Canadian Tire in Mississauga, Ont., this week was married to the man charged in the case.

Peel Region police have identified the woman as 22-year-old Chandanpreet Kaur.

Officers were called to the store around 6 p.m. on Monday after reports of a stabbing and found Kaur with apparent stab wounds – they say she died at the scene.

Investigators say Kaur’s husband of three years – 26-year-old Charanjeet Singh – was arrested and taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Singh was charged earlier this week with first-degree murder in the case.

Police are asking anyone with information, video or dashcam footage of the incident to reach out.
