A 22-year-old man is facing murder and assault charges in the slaying of a White Rock man on Sunday.

Jeffrey Caille was expected to appear in Surrey Provincial Court Tuesday after being remanded into custody.

Police have identified 61-year-old Bruce Ridout as the victim who was found dead in a home after reports of a fight.

Two other females were also found injured and were transferred to hospital for treatment.

Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound, with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, says a police investigation is underway but they won't be releasing further details.

Caille has been charged with one count of second-degree murder, one count of assault causing bodily harm and two counts of assault.

Ridout's autopsy was also scheduled for Tuesday.
