A judge has ruled a Calgary man charged in the stabbing deaths of five students at a house party more than two years ago is not criminally responsible for his actions.
Matthew de Grood, who was facing five counts of first-degree murder, had admitted he killed the five.
Both the defence and the Crown had agreed the 24-year-old was suffering from a mental disorder at the time.
The court heard de Grood became withdrawn about a month before the attack that killed Kaitlin Perras, Lawrence Hong, Josh Hunter, Zackariah Rathwell and Jordan Segura.
