Yadwinder Singh charged with alleged murder of wife at Queensland farm

It is reported that when officers arrived at the property, they found Amarjit Kaur Sardar with “significant injuries” - mutilated after being ran over by a sugar cane slasher.

Queensland Police have charged truck driver Yadwinder Singh, 44-year-old, over the alleged murder of his wife, Amarjit Kaur Sardar, 41-year-old, at their property in Woodhill, south of Brisbane.

Emergency services were called to a property on Undullah Road at Woodhill about 9:30 am on Thursday on reports of an incident involving machinery.

It is reported that when officers arrived at the property, they found Amarjit Kaur Sardar with “significant injuries” – mutilated after being allegedly run over by a sugar cane slasher.

The first responders were unable to save her.

In court documents obtained by NCA NewsWire, Mr Singh’s birthplace is listed as Khabe Rajputan, a village near Amritsar in Punjab, India.

Detective Inspector Chris Knight told reporters the couple were married with two teenage children. They had owned the 55-hectare farming property, containing cane, animals, and vehicles and buildings.

It is reported that the children were not home at the time of their mother’s death and interstate relatives have travelled to Queensland to watch over them for the time being. 

Detective Knight added that a sedan, a farm tractor, and a slasher have been removed from the property by police.

“We’ve seized them to further examine those scenarios. There’s many, many considerations that will go into that.”

Police divers and up to 50 SES volunteers are being used to help search for evidence on the property.

Brisbane Times reported that police detectives were halos reviewing video recordings on the couple’s phones. The recordings, which still need to be translated, are understood to include videos made of each other.

Logan Criminal Investigation Branch has launched an investigation and will also be investigating any history of alleged domestic violence.

Police prosecutor Karine Evans told the court a pathology report was at least three months away.

“There were quite a number of recordings on both the defendant’s and victim’s phones which require translation, so those are probably going to be the lengthiest delays.”

Further, Queensland Police will allege that Mr Singh had allegedly murdered his wife before interfering with her corpse to make the death seem like an accident.

Detective Knight told the media:

“There were some observations our investigators made on our initial triage with the scene that gave us concerns there may have been some manipulation of the crime scene. He reported that his wife had passed away and there were some limited follow-up questions fed to him by the [ambulance] operators.”

Mr Singh is represented by defence lawyer Corey Cook. He made no application for bail and was remanded in custody. A full brief of evidence will be ordered by May 17.

Mr Singh was not produced before Beenleigh Magistrates Court when his matter was mentioned on Friday. His matter was adjourned until June and he will remain in custody until then.
