Sukhpreet "Jesse" Shergill is charged with manslaughter in Deepak Chahal's killing.

Deepak Chahal was killed in Surrey on June 19

The trial for a man accused of killing a 22-year-old student in Surrey last year has been set for next April.

Sukhpreet “Jesse” Shergill is charged with manslaughter in the death of Mandepaak “Deepak” Chahal.

Police were called to the area of 131 Street and 65B Avenue in the early hours of June 19, 2014 for a reported stabbing. Chahal was taken to hospital, where he later died.

Shergill, 21, was arrested and charged four months later.

After his death, Chahal’s family said he was a younger brother to two sisters, and was in his second year of the electrical program at BCIT.

“He touched the hearts of many with his contagious smile and positivity,” said one sister. “Such a young beautiful soul taken away over nothing.”

Shergill’s trial is scheduled for 10 days, beginning April 10 in Surrey Provincial Court.
