Accused killer in 2017 Surrey homicide caught in California
A B.C. man wanted in a 2017 Surrey murder has been arrested in California.
Brandon Nathan Teixeira, who is charged in the October 2017 murder of Nicholas Khabra, was picked up Sunday at a residence in Oroville, 105 kilometres north of Sacramento.
Khabra was gunned down on Oct. 23, 2017 outside a residence in the 14300-block of Crescent Road. He later died in hospital.
Teixeira has a criminal record that includes a 2016 conviction for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking. He also has outstanding charges from 2016 for aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and uttering threats.
Khabra also had a criminal history.
In 2011, he was arrested by the gang task force and charged with a number of firearms offences. Within days, those charges were withdrawn.
Two years earlier in 2009, he was handed a six-month conditional sentence for dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
In a related civil suit, Khabra was ordered in 2011 to pay the person he struck $205,000, according to records of the case obtained by Postmedia.
