CALGARY — Family and friends of a 17-year-old Calgary youth who died when he was pushed between two transit train cars wept as emotional victim impact statements were read in court Monday.
The father of Gage Prevost broke down as he described how he had to identify his son’s mutilated body at the medical examiner’s office.
Natalie Pasqua has pleaded guilty to manslaughter for pushing Prevost into the light-rail transit train during a fight over a $10 drug deal.
She was previously convicted of second-degree murder, but successfully argued on appeal that the judge made a mistake in the charge to the jury.
The Crown argues that Pasqua should serve another two years on top of the equivalent of three years and four months she has already spent in custody.
Her defence lawyer was to make his sentencing arguments Monday afternoon.
