Dean Anderson, 44, faces second-degree murder and aggravated assault charges

A man has been arrested and charged in connection to the murder of one man in Surrey last month and assault of another.

On Nov. 23, Richard Lomas was killed and Donovan Foster seriously injured during an altercation at an illegal after-hours establishment.

A fight took place at a property that had been shut down as an illegal bar in April, according to the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT).

“Inside that residence there were approximately 30 to 50 individuals,” said Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokesperson for the IHIT.

On Dec. 4, police arrested 44-year-old Dean Anderson in connection with the homicide and the assault.

Anderson appeared in Surrey Provincial Court Thursday  on charges of second degree murder of Lomas and aggravated assault of Foster.  His next appearance is in January.

The murder of Lomas marked Surrey’s 23rd homicide of the year, an all-time high for the city.
