Man gets nine years in fatal stabbing

  • Print

A young man who killed a 17-year-old boy with a ceremonial knife during a fight three years ago will be going to prison.

Justice Joan McKelvey said this morning she will sentence the 20-year-old man to a nine-year prison sentence.

But the sentence isn’t official until a report is completed indicating where he will serve his time.

Until then, the killer cannot be named because he was a youth at the time of the attack.

It’s not known when the placement report will be completed.
