Husband charged in West Chester quadruple homicide


WEST CHESTER, Ohio (WDTN) – West Chester police say an arrest was made in the case of a quadruple homicide that took place at the end of April.

59-year-old Hakiakat Singh Pannag, 62-year-old Parmjit Kaur, 58-year-old Amarjit Kaur, and 39-year-old Shalinderjit Kaur were found shot to death at an apartment on Wyndtree Drive.

WLWT reports that Gurpreet Singh, the man who initially called 911 on April 28 to report the slayings, was arrested in Connecticut and faces four murder charges.

Singh is the husband of Shalinderjit Kaur, who had been shot three times. Hakiakat Singh Pannag and Parmjit Kaur were her parents, while Amarjit Kaur was her aunt.

The four victims were shot a total of 18 times inside the residence.

The autopsy report on all four victims indicates they had likely been dead for a while before they were found.

Tuesday evening, Shalinderjit’s uncle issued a statement saying:

On behalf of my broad family and friends, we are very thankful to West Chester police department for making an arrest in connection with murders of our relatives. We are also thankful to Ohio state, Federal and other law enforcement agencies who participated in the investigation. We highly appreciate Sikh community of greater Cincinnati who helped police in the investigation. We have full faith in Chief Herzog’s team, and pray for murder convictions in the court.
