Accused in Langley triple murder back in court

Ebrahimian made a routine court appearance on Wednesday

Kia Ebrahimian, the man charged with three counts of murder in the death of his sister, mother, and step-father, was in Surrey Provincial Court Wednesday morning.

After the fix-date hearing, Ebrahimian was scheduled to appear in court again on Sept. 16.

No trial date has yet been scheduled.

Ebrahimian has been charged with three counts of second-degree murder after the June 13 deaths of his sister Medea ‘Befrin’ Ebrahimian, his mother Tatiana Bazyar, and his mother’s common-law-husband Francesco Zangrilli.

Kia was the only survivor of a fire that destroyed the family’s home in the Langley Meadows neighbourhood.

He was arrested just under a month later after the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) began looking into the case. Ebrahimian has been in custody ever since.
