Police say Harjot Singh Deo was in a romantic relationship with 19-year-old Kiran Dhesi, who received a life-saving kidney transplant six months before she was killed.

With the latest arrests, a total of five members of the same family have now been charged in connection to Dhesi's murder.

RCMP confirmed that newly-arrested Gurvinder Deo is Harjot Singh Deo's brother, while Talwinder Khun Khun is an extended family member.
