Notorious B.C. fugitive Brandon Teixeira to face extradition hearing in California

An extradition hearing for an “extremely violent” fugitive who evaded Canadian police for more than a year is scheduled to get underway in Sacramento, Calif., on Wednesday.

Brandon Teixeira is facing charges of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Nicholas Khabra in Surrey in 2017, and attempted murder charges related to a double stabbing in Maple Ridge in 2015.

The 2017 killing also left Khabra’s girlfriend with gunshot wounds.

Extradition documents have raised the allegation that Teixeira was motivated by revenge and a $160,000 bounty in the slaying.

The 28-year-old was arrested in Oroville, Calif., in December, after a 15-month Canada-wide manhunt that included a $55,000 reward.
