A Winnipeg judge ruled May 26th that a man convicted in the freezing death of a 13-year-old girl in 1984 would have to spend the maximum 25 years in prison before being eligible for parole. Mark Edward Grant was found guilty earlier this year of the second-degree murder of Candace Derksen and got an automatic life sentence. The victim's mom, Wilma Derksen, said she was mourning the loss of two lives -- that of her daughter and her killer. (Grant's lawyer had argued his client had a tragic upbringing and had asked the judge to let Grant apply for parole after no more than 14 years.)
