7 years for murder
Sarah Elizabeth Brown | January 22, 2008, 7:56 pm

A young man who burst into a 62-year-old‘s apartment and beat the man to death with a steel pipe has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

After taking into consideration time already spent in custody, the sentence means 4 1/2 years in a federal penitentiary.

Justice Joyce Pelletier sentenced Louis Moonias, 18, Tuesday morning after hearing submissions from lawyers in December.

Moonias was 17 when he was arrested and charged with the second-degree murder of 62-year-old Thomas Allen Killingbeck on March 9, 2006.

He pleaded guilty in September 2007 to manslaughter, a crime that would bring a maximum of three years in jail as a youth. Though adult manslaughter has a maximum of life in prison, sentences usually fall in the five- to eight-year range.

Because the Crown applied to have Moonias sentenced as an adult, and the defence consented, his identity can be published.

The agreed statement of facts provided to the court earlier outlined a night of Moonias and two other men consuming beer and prescription narcotics.

The other two men provided statements to police.

The above involves the first of three murders in 2006. We're still at 0 for 2008. This day last year we had our first homicide of 2007; a woman was found dead in an apartment and police withheld information for almost a week.
