The boy who shot four people to death and wounded seven others in the northern Saskatchewan community of La Loche in January of 2016 will be sentenced May 8.
The decision was made in Meadow Lake on Friday. The boy, now 20, faces a term of life in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder.
While he will be sentenced as an adult, the judge has said he can’t be named publicly until sentencing is complete.
What isn’t known at this time is whether or not he will be serving his time at the federal penitentiary in Prince Albert or the Regional Psychiatric Centre in Saskatoon.
The then 17 year old killed brothers Dayne and Drayden Fontaine in their home before heading to the community’s school where he shot Adam Wood and Marie Janvier while wounding seven others before surrendering.
