A Montreal man who pleaded guilty to stabbing his unborn baby to death will spend at least 15 years in prison before he’s eligible for parole.The 40-year-old Ghazi pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and aggravated assault on his former wife in September 2019, just two days into his jury trial.Two weeks after that, Ghazi tried to withdraw the pleas but the court rejected that request in a decision rendered in March.

Second-degree murder carries an automatic life sentence but it was up to Justice Jean-Claude Buffoni to decide how many years Ghazi would serve before being eligible for parole. In a joint statement of facts, the court heard that in July 2017, Ghazi used a carving fork to stab his wife 19 times – 12 on the left side of her stomach and seven in her left thigh.The baby had a heartbeat for several minutes before succumbing to his injuries.

Just because you’re eligible, doesn’t mean parole is a given. Chances are this man will not see the light of day for decades. When people hear “parole”, they lose their minds. Because in Canada and most countries, there is no such thing as a forever sentence.

Man..the U.S just does some things right...while our systems gives this POS gets a 15yr term.

Parole?

before parole eligibility? I don't think Canadians agree with that Canadian's need to rethink the death penalty...

Shouldn’t it read “man who stabbed blob of inanimate cells given 15 years in jail”? Based on what we’ve been brainwashed by the pro-abortion movement...

This animal should serve “life with NO chance at parole or pardon” & exit the prison in a hearse! Charles Manson did this in California in 2017 after nearly 50 years.
