Accused killer Brandon Teixeira back in Canada

BRANDON Nathan Teixeira, charged with first-degree murder in the death of 28-year-old Nicholas Khabra, has been extradited back to Canada.

On Friday, April 24, Teixeira arrived back on Canadian soil, pursuant to the extradition agreement between Canada and the United States, after being held in custody in the U.S. since December 1, 2019, following his arrest in Oroville, California.  Teixeira faces several criminal charges including first-degree murder.  He will make his next appearance in B.C. Provincial Court at a later date.

The extradition of Teixeira back to Canada ends a long journey for many investigators from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) and the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit – British Columbia (CFSEU-BC).  The CFSEU-BC’s support of IHIT in the pursuit of Teixeira has been continuous and unwavering since he fled on September 5, 2018, said IHIT that expressed its gratitude to the CFSEU-BC and its other partners for their contributions to this investigation.

IHIT said no further information will be released as the matter is now before the court.
