Randy O'Hagan is going to prison for 25 years for the murder of Saskatoon mother Lorry Santos.
Justice Ron Mills read his decision this morning at Court of Queen's Bench in Saskaton. The Santos family, O'Hagan's brother Evan and a small group of friends were all in court.
Lorry Santos's sister, husband, and friend all read victim impact statements into the record.
"She embodied everything I could ask for in a partner. My love, my best friend, my entire world," said Ferdinand Santos in his statement. "Most of all I miss Lorry."
Judge speaks to O'Hagan
Justice Mills spoke directly to O'Hagan after the young man declined the chance to speak.
'I really have no concern for you at all, for your redemption, your rehabilitation or remorse.' - Justice Ron Mills
Mills said that he could not imagine a death more stupid or senseless and that the entire tragedy came from "drug-fuelled stupidity."
"I really have no concern for you at all, for your redemption, your rehabilitation or remorse," Mills said.
As deputies led O'Hagan to the van taking him to jail, he made an obscene gesture to media and spewed obscenities.
The evidence is overwhelming
It took Justice Mills about 40 minutes to read his decision.
He described how O'Hagan and a partner had come to Saskatoon to kill a man who left the White Boy Posse street gang. The pair, however, went to the wrong address and shot Lorry Santos by mistake.
O'Hagan is going to prison for 25 years. A third man will stand trial this fall also in connection with the shooting.
