Inderdeep Kaur Deo, 23, is charged with accessory after the fact to murder.
Inderdeep Deo was arrested May 24. She is the older sister of Harjot Singh Deo, who has been charged with second degree murder in Dhesi’s death.
Dhesi, 19, was last seen leaving the family home, with the family car, at 9 p.m. on Aug. 1, 2017. Her body was found in a torched SUV at 12:20 a.m. Aug. 2, in the 18700-block of 24 Avenue in South Surrey.
