Recommended Posts

Canada's prison service is reviewing its decision to move a notorious serial killer from a maximum-security prison to a medium-security facility.

Paul Bernardo was sent to the lower security facility last week, igniting outrage across the country.

Bernardo committed a series of sex crimes, rapes and murders in Toronto in the late 1980s and 1990s.

In 1995, he was sentenced to life in prison without parole for at least 25 years.

Bernardo, 58, was handed the life sentence for kidnapping, torturing and killing two schoolgirls - Leslie Mahaffy, 14, and Kristen French, 15. He was also found guilty of the manslaughter and rape of his sister-in-law, 15-year-old Tammy Homolka.

I remember the reports on this case. His wife, Tammy's sister, was just as involved and got a prison sentence too. She got off light because of a plea bargain. Here's a refresher about their case.

Hi Susieice

Yes she was lucky she copped a deal before they found out she was just as warped as he was.
