A man who admitted to assaulting his girlfriend and killing her two daughters in “an act of extreme violence” has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 17 years. The 31-year-old man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the children, pleaded guilty in Court of Queen’s Bench last month to two counts of second-degree murder, aggravated assault and breach of probation. One of the children was three and the other was just over six months old when they were stabbed to death and their mother assaulted at an Edmonton apartment in December 2018. “This case involves the very tragic deaths of two young children,” Justice John Henderson said Friday as he delivered his decision. Henderson said the man’s duty was to take care of the children, but he instead carried out a “senseless, brutal, vicious and inexplicable act of extreme violence that caused (their) deaths.”
