The man who killed three First Nations almost three years ago was sentenced to prison Tuesday.

Austin Vielle was will spend the next 20 years behind bars before he can apply for parole. 

The sentencing comes a day after Vielle pleading guilty to the 2015 murders in Lethbridge, Alta.

Dakota English, 18, and Clarissa English, 24, were murdered, along with Clarissa’s boyfriend Kyle Devine, 27.

Vielle was arrested two weeks later and charged with second-degree murder.

The court heard the victims died of multiple stab wounds.

A search of Vielle’s home found blood stained clothing and shoes. DNA testing matched the blood to the victims.

Vielle says he was intoxicated and can’t remember what happened.
