Delta father pleads guilty to second degree murder after stabbing two year old daughter

Lakhvinder Kahlon, the Delta man who was charged in the stabbing death of his two year old daughter, has  suddenly entered a guilty plea to second degree murder.

The plea automatically carries a sentence of life in prison. Parole determinations will be given Thursday.

The horrendous act that occurred a year ago, touched off a whirlwind of heated discussion here on the website, leading to  some shocking and insightful revelations about female inequality within the Sikh community , in the comments sections below each of the following posts:

The thought that anyone would, or could, murder a young child simply because she was not the preferred gender still disgusts me- regardless of the reasonings behind it and regardless of cultural influences. Although it was denied at times by family members, the court heard that Kahlon was distraught over not having any sons.

May justice be served.
