Life sentence for man in ‘sweetheart’ slayings


An Alberta man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing high school sweethearts on the Whitefish First Nation.

Edward Devin Gladue entered a guilty plea in Peace River, Alta., Monday.

He was charged with second-degree murder for the deaths of Dylan Laboucan and his girlfriend, Cory Grey.

The sentence means Gladue can apply for parole in 13 years. The 20-year-old pleaded guilty to committing the double murder on July 23, 2016.

Court heard the young couple was inseparable and lived together in the Laboucan family trailer. That’s where Gladue found and shot them, before moving their bodies to separate locations in the northeastern Alberta community.

Gladue is also banned from owning firearms for life, and was ordered not to communicate with the families of the victims.

No motive for the murders was provided in court.
