Fort Macleod Axe Murderer Denied Open Custody

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - A young Fort Macleod man who brutally murdered his mother with an axe in 2009 will remain in secure custody for the time being.

 

The man, who can't be named because he was only 17 at the time of the murder, was initially given a seven year sentence in September 2010, of four years in secure custody followed by three years of conditional supervision in the community.

 

On Wednesday, his case coordinators recommended he be granted open custody for the remainder of his custodial sentence, which would include time in a half way house, since he has exhausted programming opportunities at the Calgary Young Offender Centre and it would be good for him to have a slow, controlled transition into the community.

 

However, the judge decided that the original sentence was fit and proper and would remain in place for now. Lawyers agreed to meet again on April 30th to review the final four months of the custody portion.
