Green was first knocked out, then stabbed over 100 times.
The crime happened in December, 2010. Melvin Skeete Jr., who was 16 years old at the time of the incident, was sentenced today in Nova Scotia Youth Court to life in prison with no chance of parole until Dec. 3, 2017.
That will mark seven years since Skeete Jr. killed Brittany Green, a 17-year-old from Glace Bay, on Dec. 3, 2010.
The identities of both parties were previously protected by the Youth Criminal Justice Act, however, Green's family had requested that her name be made public.
Reporter Norma Jean MacPhee joined us with the details.
