Investigators have charged a 21- year-old Surrey man in the death of a Coquitlam man almost a year ago.
Jeffery Stevens was identified as a suspect and Saturday was charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of Terry Miller, 66, on Feb. 10, 2022.
Miller and another man had been stabbed during a confrontation in a house at 228 Schoolhouse St. and Miller died in hospital 12 days later. A charge of aggravated assault was also laid against Stevens, in relation to the second victim, who survived.
The arrest followed a year of work by investigators, said Sgt. Timothy Pierotti, of IHIT.
I’m proud of the hard work of the investigators who were committed to seeing this through,” he said in a statement.
