Day parole revoked for Calgary man who strangled wife, hid body in basement wall

RED DEER, Alta. — A man who strangled his wife and concealed her body in a wall of their Calgary home is going back to prison.

The Parole Board of Canada, at a hearing in Red Deer, Alta., decided to revoke day parole to Allan Shyback.

Shyback was convicted of manslaughter and causing an indignity to a body in the 2012 death of Lisa Mitchell.

He was sentenced to seven years in prison but the Alberta Court of Appeal later increased the term to 10 years.

Shyback, who was granted day parole in February, had requested full parole.

The board said Shyback breached some terms of his release by having a relationship with a sex worker and reaching out to another woman on the dating app Tinder.

A board spokewoman said there was also a lot of “deceit” in Shyback’s responses at the hearing on Tuesday, and he was ordered back to prison.
