Dorval teen who killed brother gets 2 years' probation
The Dorval teen who killed his older brother at their family home in early 2013 has been sentenced to two years' probation, with no additional time in custody.
He will be required to live with a relative and abide by certain restrictions.
The 14-year-old boy pleaded guilty in September to criminal negligence causing death in the January 2013 shooting of his 16-year-old brother.
The boy was 12 years old at the time and cannot be identified because he is a minor. He pleaded guilty last September to criminal negligence causing death using a firearm, armed robbery and shoplifting.
He faces a maximum of three years in custody under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
The teen, who spent 11 months in closed custody, was released over the 2013 winter holidays into the care of his cousin. He has been under house arrest there since December.
His sentencing was supposed to be determined earlier this year, but had been delayed several times.
