Yeah, 12-13 year sentence for gutting your 10 year old child like a fish seems fair in British Columbia, where a human life much like this guy is worthless!
A Delta, B.C., man who pleaded guilty to killing and decapitating his 2½-year-old daughter in January 2008 will have to spend 11 years behind bars before becoming eligible for parole.
Lakhvinder Kahlon, 48, sat quietly beside a Punjabi translator in a New Westminster courtroom on Friday as B.C. Supreme Court Justice Arne Silverman read the sentence.
Kahlon was on trial for first-degree murder, but on Monday he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of second-degree murder, for which he received an automatic life sentence.
