The incident was one that “snowballed quickly,” said defence counsel for [the accused] Wednesday at the Medicine Hat Courthouse. And it was “uncharacteristic” of his 27-year-old client who has no prior criminal record. [The accused] will be allowed to serve his sentence over weekends.

The fatal shooting of a man thought to be working for a rival drug dealer garnered a Calgary man a nine-year sentence Monday.
[The accused] was already serving a manslaughter sentence for the December 2006 slaying of Victim 1 when he was given the latest stint in prison by Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Kristine Eidsvik for gunning down Victim 2 and dumping his body in a field east of Calgary.
[The accused] and the others were arrested Feb. 24, 2014, and because of late disclosure by the Crown, Kothari said, isn't set to go to trial until early 2018.
