The woman accused of killing Kwantlen First Nation elder George Antone in  2011 has been returned to B.C. and has appeared in Provincial Court in Surrey to face one charge of second-degree murder.

The Integrated Homicide investigation Team announced last week that Michelle Marie Serdar, 42,  has been charged with second-degree murder.

She was arrested in Quebec City after an extensive investigation.

Antone’s body was discovered in his McMillan Island home on March 7, 2011.

The 71-year-old had been shot to death.

It’s believed Serdar lived on the island from time to time.

So far, police do not have a motive for the murder.

Serdar is scheduled to make her next court appearance on Dec. 5.
