Killer gets bail after jailhouse assault in Headingley

The 14-year-old who murdered his adoptive mother and five-year-old sister has been granted bail after an alleged involvement in a jailhouse assault that took place while he was serving time for the double death.

The man, now 21 years old, appeared in Winnipeg court Tuesday regarding the January assault at the Headingley Correctional Centre and the man is slated to go to trial on Sept. 5, confirmed his Winnipeg defence attorney, Sarah Inness.

Inness said the details from the bail hearing were protected by a publication ban and she would not specify the nature of the bail conditions.

The bail hearing came just days after he completed his sentence for the murders — four years in jail followed by three years supervision in the community, the maximum sentence under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Tuesday’s bail hearing was in regard to a separate crime while in jail and therefore was handled by Winnipeg court where the assault charges were laid.

At 14 years old, he shot and killed his 43-year-old adoptive mother and five-year-old sister, who was also adopted, in the family’s St. Lazare home in August 2007.

The plan set out last week in Brandon court is for the man — once assessed as a high risk to reoffend violently — to live at a highly supervised forensic psychological services home in Winnipeg that is staffed around the clock where he’ll continue to work with a psychologist and see a youth worker regularly.

Also Included in the conditions were orders that the offender have no weapons, no contact with the slain mother’s family, and that he not attend St. Lazare or Brandon, where many of the victim’s relatives reside.

Because he was sentenced as a youth, even though the killer is now 21 years old, he can’t be identified.
