The man found guilty of four counts of first degree murder has now been sentenced to life in prison with no parole for 25 years.

Canada’s youngest serial killer Cody Legebokoff was sentenced on Tuesday, September 16th for the murders of Jill Stuchenko, 35, Cynthia Maas, 35, Natasha Montgomery, 23, and 15 year old Loren Leslie. Justice Glen Parrett handed down the sentence in a Prince George court room.

Legebokoff was found guilty of the murders after jurors deliberated for nearly a full day. The 24 Fort St. James man tried to plead guilty of the lesser charge of second degree murder during the trial but that was rejected by the Crown.

Loren Leslie’s father Doug has been vocal through social media about the case and just hours before the sentence came down he posted to his Facebook page about the events set to unfold.

Legebokoff killed the four young women around the Prince George area within a 14 month span in 2009 and it wasn’t until November 2010 when the first murder charge was laid against him. In October 2011 three more charges were laid against him, he was just 21 years old.

Leslie’s body was the first to be found off a logging road near Prince George. Stuchenko’s body was found four days after she went missing in 2009 in a gravel pit outside of Prince George, the cause of her death was blunt force trauma.

Mass, who also died from blunt force trauma to the head, went missing in September 2010 and her body was located in a park several weeks later. The body of Montgomery has never been located. She went missing in September 2010 as well.
