Two men arrested in Maple Batalia homicide case


Recommended Posts

Two males have been arrested in connection with the homicide of Maple Batalia, a Surrey teenager gunned down last year as she was leaving Simon Fraser University.

Sgt. Jennifer Pound, a spokeswoman for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said the two males are in custody and are facing murder charges.

Pound released few details on Saturday, but said a news conference will be held at 6 p.m. in Surrey to update the public on the case. Members of Batalia's family are also expected to attend.

The 19-year-old SFU student was shot to death about 1 a.m. on Sept. 28, 2011 as she left SFU’s Surrey campus after an evening of studying with friends.

Batalia was a health sciences student and a part-time actor and model. She had hoped to become a doctor.

There have been arrests but whether or not there are convictions will be based upon relevant admissible evidence that proves the charges laid beyond a reasonable doubt.

This is just the beginning of that judicial determination.

1st degree murder will get them a life bit with no parole for 25 years.

Tragic situation for everyone including Maple her family and friends and these idiots who killed her. Now they will sit in jail until they are senior citizens and their families will also suffer.
