DEREK SARETZKY SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON WITH NO CHANCE OF PAROLE FOR 75 YEARS
Derek Saretzky is almost guaranteed to NEVER get out of jail. He's getting an automatic life sentence for killing Hanne Meketech, Terry Blanchette and his daughter---Hailey Dunbar-Blanchette in southern Alberta in 2015. Meketech was his neighbour---he had attacked her with a bat and knife after breaking into her home. Just a few days later---he broke into Blanchette's home--killing him with a crowbar and knife before taking Hailey out of her crib.l She was strangled to death at an acreage owned by some of his family members. As for parole---the judge said Saretzky showed no remorse for what he did----says his actions were deliberate----and so----wont be able to apply for parole for 75 years. That means he would be about 97 before he'd even be eligible. Its one of the strongest sentences ever handed out in Canada.
It isnt known yet if Saretzky is going to appeal his sentence.
