Toronto Doctor accused of killing wife in court Tuesday

Happy Days: The Shamji's friends described the couple as outgoing and friendly.

A 40-year-old Toronto doctor accused of murdering his wife is scheduled to answer the charges on Tuesday.

Elana Fric-Shamji, 40, body was found  in a suitcase, with the signs of strangulation and marks of trauma on the side of a road north of Toronto on Dec. 1.

Her husband of 12 years,  Mohammed Shamji, is charged with first-degree murder in her death.

A statement issued by the deceased family after her death, thanked the public especially for the support shown for her three young children.

“It has been a kindness for which we are very thankful,” they said in the statement. “We would also like to express thanks to the many friends, neighbours and colleagues who have shared their memories of Elana as a wonderful person, mother, and physician.”

The family is asking the public to make donation to The Shelter Movers of Toronto, a women’s shelter in her honour.

Shamji is a neurosurgeon and was also a faculty member at the University of Toronto.
