A judge has found a man from Surrey, B.C., guilty of second-degree murder, ruling that Tejwant Danjou intended to kill his partner or at least knew his violent actions could lead to her death.

Rama Gauravarapu was killed at a hotel in West Kelowna on July 22, 2018.

Competing explanations of Danjou's state of mind were presented to Justice Allison Beames of the B.C. Supreme Court during closing arguments last month at his trial for second-degree murder.

The Crown said Danjou was an abusive and violent man.

The defence asked for a manslaughter conviction and described Danjou as suffering from delusions about his partner's fidelity.

Beames said there was no doubt Danjou killed Gauravarapu.
