Toronto serial killer Bruce McArthur sentenced to life in prison

If they were to run concurrently, he would serve each of the sentences at the same time, meaning that after 25 years, when McArthur is 91 years old, he would be eligible for parole.

"It is my hope that he will never again know freedom and that this sentence begins the hard journey of delivering justice to the victims of these crimes, their friends and families, our LGBTQ community, and our entire city", said Tory in a statement regarding the sentencing, adding that the victims should be remembered.

Landscape gardener McArthur targeted victims linked to Toronto's Gay Village over a period of seven years, with some arguing that police may have missed chances to catch the killer.

After the sentencing, Nicole Borthwick, who knew some of the victims, said outside court that the judge was too lenient. This case has resulted in a strained relationship between the Toronto Police Department and a local LGBTQ community that doesn't understand what took almost a decade to get this gay serial killer off the streets.

"Sentencing Mr. McArthur to parole ineligibility until he is 116 years of age is symbolic".

Serial killer Bruce McArthur is being sentenced Friday.

McArthur had some sort of relationship - some of which were sexual - with each of his victims, Toronto Police spokeswoman Meaghan Gray said past year. He called their dismemberments pure evil, but said the guilty plea spared a jury four months of graphic and gruesome evidence that would have likely required counselling after. "Unfortunately, they will live with this nightmare for the rest of their lives".

"This sentence must reflect society's revulsion for such depravity and violence", Ontario Superior Court Justice John McMahon wrote in his decision, according to the CBC.

Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders told reporters after the judgment that the department was satisfied with the sentence. "This court can not give them what they want the most - which is their loved one back".

A number of investigations have been launched in the wake of the case, including a disciplinary case of an officer involved in an incident involving McArthur and an internal review into how missing persons cases are handled.

In his victim impact statement read earlier this week, Jalill Kayhan, brother of Majeed, said the family had agonized over his disappearance since 2012, not knowing where he went, what happened to him, and then, finally being notified of his "horrific and brutal murder".

Which is why it's disheartening and, frankly, disgusting that Bruce McArthur will be eligible for parole in only 25 years when a judge could have ensured he never faced the possibility.

"Hopefully, one thing that comes out of this is better lines of communication between the police and marginalised communities across the city", he added.

"I remember seeing Bruce McArthur sitting outside Starbucks". On his computer, investigators found file folders for his eight victims containing photographs of each of them.

McArthur pleaded guilty on January 29. "Although there can be no closure from a harm of this magnitude, we hope that these eight convictions for first-degree murder will assist our community in beginning a new chapter of healing". Local LGBTQ organizations, including the The Alliance for South Asian AIDS Prevention, a wellness program in Toronto, hypothesized that anti-gay and racist bigotry prevented them from solving this case efficiently, noting that police investigations were only amped up after a white man was killed in 2017.
