Delta man charged in stabbing death of Coquitlam senior

A 24-year-old Delta man has been charged with manslaughter in the death of a man who died from stab wounds almost a year ago.

A second man has been charged in the homicide of Terry Miller.

Today (Monday), the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) announced the arrest and charge of a Delta man in relation to a fatal stabbing that occurred Feb. 10, 2022, in the area of 228 Schoolhouse St. — a strip mall just north of Lougheed Highway in Coquitlam.

Chalice Slavik of Delta, 24, was arrested Jan. 27 and BC Prosecution Service (BCPS) have now laid a charge of manslaughter.

This recent charge follows the arrest of 21-year old Jeffrey Stevens of Surrey, who was charged with second degree murder.

Stevens was also charged with aggravated assault in relation to a second, surviving victim.

Nearly a year ago, Coquitlam RCMP were called to the scene of a stabbing and found a 66-year-old man suffering from stab wounds. He later died of his injuries.

IHIT took conduct of the investigation and continued to work closely in partnership with the Coquitlam RCMP, the BC Coroners Service and the RCMP Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS), according to a press release.

“IHIT is extremely grateful for our strong partnership with the other Lower Mainland Integrated Teams,” stated Sgt. Timothy Pierotti of IHIT, in a news release.

“Incidents such as this have a profound impact on a community. IHIT remains dedicated to working with our partners to keep the Lower Mainland safe.”
