Canada’s Youngest Convicted Multiple Killer Gets 8 1/2 Years – 4 in Custody

Girlfriend of Jeremy Steinke

MEDICINE HAT, Alta. – An Alberta judge has sentenced Canada’s youngest convicted multiple murderer to 10 years – the maximum allowed for someone her age – for the slayings of her mother, father and eight-year-old brother.

The girl, now 14, will spend four of those years in custody and another 4 1/2 years under supervision in the community.

Justice Scott Brooker gave the girl, who was found guilty in July of three counts of first-degree murder, credit for the 18 months she has already spent in custody.

She was just 12 when the three were stabbed and slashed to death in their home in the southeastern Alberta city of Medicine Hat in April 2006.

The girl’s identity is protected by the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Her former boyfriend, Jeremy Steinke, 24, is also charged with first-degree murder.
