Canadian “justice”: Kill your disabled daughter, get life in prison for her murder, get full parole after less than 20 years.
VICTORIA — Robert Latimer, the Saskatchewan farmer who killed his severely disabled daughter, has been granted full parole and will be home by Christmas, says his lawyer.
Jason Gratl says Latimer was granted full parole as of Dec. 6 at a hearing on Thursday.
Gratl says Latimer does not want to discuss the conditions of his release or his current emotional state.
The 57-year-old farmer was convicted of second-degree murder and given a life sentence for the 1993 death of his severely disabled daughter, Tracy.
He described the carbon monoxide poisoning of Tracy at his farm near Wilkie, Sask., as a mercy killing.
Latimer was released from prison in February 2008.
He has been spending five nights a week at the Victoria halfway house for the past two years, and two in his Victoria apartment.
