CBC News is reporting that Layne Bobby Dean Larose who was found not criminally responsible in the murder of David Kennedy and Hughie Sayers will be released in Saskatoon. Larose murdered David Kennedy and Hughie Sayers in an axe attack in 2002 in North Battleford. The house they were in was then set on fire.
In 2004, North Battleford Queen’s Bench Justice Donald Krueger found Larose to be not criminally responsible for his actions because of a mental illness.According to evidence from a psychiatrist, Larose suffered from a chronic paranoid schizophrenic illness.
Doctors have determined that Larose no longer poses a threat and he has been slowly reintegrated back into society. Larose will have to report to a mental health worker and live in a group home.
