MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - The youngest Canadian to be convicted of multiple murder was sentenced Thursday to the maximum allowed for someone her age for the slayings of her mother, father and eight-year-old brother.
Justice Scott Brooker said he needed to give the girl 10 years, the most he could under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, to hold her accountable for her crimes.
The girl, now 14, will spend four of those years in custody and another 4 1/2 years under supervision in the community. Brooker gave her credit for the 18 months she has already spent in custody.
The girl, who cannot be named because of her age, was found guilty in July of three counts of first-degree murder. She was just 12 when her family members were stabbed and slashed to death in their home in the southeastern Alberta
