Sandy Charles to be moved to hospital in North Battleford
Child killer asked for transfer after spending 13 years in Regional Psychiatric Centre
Child killer Sandy Charles will be transferred to Saskatchewan Hospital in North Battleford.
Charles has spent the last 13 years at the high security Regional Psychiatric Centre in Saskatoon.
He made the transfer request last month to the Saskatchewan Review Board — they have found Charles to be mentally stable.
In 1995, Charles killed and mutilated a seven-year-old boy in La Ronge and boiled strips of his victim's skin.
He was 14 years old at the time. Charles was captivated by the movie Warlock, which made claims that drinking the boiled-down fat from a virgin would give him the power to fly.
Charles was found not criminally responsible for mental reasons and has been in a psychiatric facility ever since.
He will now be transferred and held in the North Battleford hospital's secure unit.
