A Saskatchewan man who killed his friend will have to serve part of his jail time in a psychiatric centre.
Twenty-three-year-old Antoine Ambrose Lariviere changed his plea to guilty and was sentenced for second-degree murder at Court of Queen’s Bench in Melfort.
Lariviere was arrested last April after the body of Clayton Ralph White, 60, was found in his Smeaton area home.
Court heard that White had a blow to his head from a sharp object, possibly an axe, and was shot two times in the abdomen, as well as a stab wound.
No details were given about what led to the attack and the Crown said that’s because Lariviere gave conflicting statements to police.
As part of the sentence, the judge recommended Lariviere serve part of it in a psychiatric facility because of his past mental health issues.
