A Cape Breton teenager found guilty of second-degree murder for stabbing his girlfriend more than 100 times has been sentenced as an adult to life in prison.
Melvin Skeete Jr., who was 16 years old at the time of the incident, was sentenced Monday in Nova Scotia Youth Court to life in prison with no chance of parole until Dec. 3, 2017.

Stabbed more than 100 times? Gee, I wonder if he was angry. Perhaps we should outlaw knives as well.
That’s some long life December 3, 2017, what a joke. That is a smack in the face to the family.
I wonder if he was Obama ‘s son?
You assume he will have a chance for parole, he may not even be allowed to petition for release.
At least he didn’t shoot her 100 times.
No chance of parole for a whole four years. What a stiff sentence.
It’s a bit short of five years, actually. Probably planning to let him out when he’s 21. Meantime he can sit in a comfy cell and play computer games or watch TV.
A rather light sentence for such an utter lack of remorse.
surely thats a typo ???
shouldnt it be 2071 ???
even 2027 might be considered life...
15 years including the time already served ..
then it might take a few hearings for his petition to be accepted
in 2017 however he will probably be 21 an adult...
maybe that is what was the deciding fact for the short 4 years...
Can’t wait for the liberal lawyers to rush to his defense and claim he did it because of society, etc, etc.
They listened to accounts of the many government and social service agencies that had tried to help the young man since he began getting in trouble at 12 years old.
They listened as he was described in one psychological assessment as being likable and further warnings that he is a high risk to commit further violent crimes.
Looks like he might be obama’s long lost canadian son.
less than 100 people get killed in mass shootings per year in the U.S. = a statistically nonexistent event made into the event of the century by the news media
criminals break into 2.5 million homes per year in the U.S.A = a real threat
in the U.S.A 300,000 women get raped each year = a real threat
millions of Americans die each year = old age = reality
trillion of dollars$ in government funded global warming research = a hoax as the world is now actually getting colder
all this propaganda meant to empower government and dis-empower the individual : it is all democrats do especially those in the news media
I was right, same ugly face
“no chance of parole until Dec. 3, 2017.”
That ought to show him how serious they are.
Nova Scotia is the Blackest Canadian Province...highest pct of Blacks. And, like in USA, they commit a high pct of crime
Nova Scotia is a scenic marvel...but you have to be careful in the cities...gun control is never crime control
Violent inner-city crime, the figures, and a question of race

The data provide a breakdown of the ethnicity of the 18,091 men and boys who police took action against for a range of violent and sexual offences in London in 2009-10.
They show that among those proceeded against for street crimes, 54 per cent were black; for robbery, 59 per cent; and for gun crimes, 67 per cent. Street crimes include muggings, assault with intent to rob and snatching property. Just over 12 per cent of Londons 7.5 million population is black, including those of mixed black and white parentage, while 69 per cent is white, according to the Office for National Statistics.
100 times, they say?
Sounds like the work of a sentient automatic assault-knife!
Normally, second-degree murder convictions result in a mandatory life sentence, with the possibility of parole after 10-25 years, depending on the sentence. (Note that this is a possible, parole—by no means a guarantee that the convict won't spend the rest of his life behind bars.)
The rules differ for those who are convicted before they turn 18. I assume this is one of those. Still seems ridiculously low, though.
The French in Canada had African slaves in the 1600s and 1700s before England took over in the 1760s...
There were many black Loyalists during the American Revolution...
escaped slaves etc..and slaves who accompanied their Loyalist masters when they fled into Canada...
They were given their freedom by the British when they went to Canada if they had fought on the British side...
also the Underground Railway ended in Niagara and then the former slaves went elsewhere to hide from the bounty hunters coming North to find them...
There are quite a few black Canadians...
There was another large influx of blacks when Upper Canada (now Ontario) banned the slave trade in 1791. The rest of the British Empire banned slavery in 1837.
