A court sketch shows murder victim Tiffany Gayle’s parents, Federick, and stepmother Elizabeth Gayle. She came to Canada to be with her family,
but there is little indication that she found a home here, not even for a moment.

Tiffany Gayle, a 15-year-old girl who moved to Brampton, Ont., from Jamaica, was found dead in June 2010, beaten and left in a bloody bathtub just 17 months after coming to Canada to live with her father and stepmother.

CALGARY — Beating his niece for refusing to marry the man of his choice has landed a Calgary man a 90-day jail term.

But the three adult children of Gurbachan Bandesha were spared a similar fate Friday, as Justice Marsha Erb granted them conditional discharges.

The discharges, which will mean no criminal records for Kamaldip and Balsher Bandesha and their sister, Jasvir Sidhu, will be conditional on them completing 18 months of probation.

Bridget Takyi was supposed to be planning a trip to Disney World with her two little boys and best high school friend.

Instead, her friend will be helping plan the 27-year-old woman’s funeral.

Takyi’s body was found Saturday on Richgrove Dr., in the Martin Grove Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W. area.

Her identity couldn’t initially be confirmed because she was burned so badly she was “virtually unrecognizable,” police said. She was the city’s third homicide victim of the year.

The judge said he rejected “completely” Garrick’s evidence at trial, saying it was “full of obfuscation, implausibilities, and outright lies.”
