Rizig Bona’s next court date is today

A jury has found a Surrey man guilty in the murder of his wife, IHIT says.

On Wednesday (March 3), according to a release from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, the jury found 47-year-old Rizig Bona guilty of second-degree murder.

“Anida Magaya’s murder is a tragic example of the extreme consequences of domestic violence,” said Sergeant Frank Jang of IHIT.

On Oct. 5, 2018, IHIT said Surrey RCMP responded to a home near 161st Street and 110th Avenue and found 42-year-old Anida Magaya “dead inside the home with significant injuries consistent with homicide.”
