18-month sentence imposed over death of girl, 10, in house fire
Denasia Sewap-Highway died in a house fire in Pelican Narrows last year
The house fire took place almost a year ago at Pelican Narrows. According to family members, Denasia Sewap-Highway originally escaped the fire, but thought her great-grandfather was still inside and went back to look for him.
Darryl Craig Sewap was 19 years-old at the time of the fire. He was also charged with arson but that charge was withdrawn as the case went through the courts.
As part of his sentence, Sewap will also be on probation for one year.
