Villeray murderer gets 12 years

The young man found guilty last week of stabbing a man to death in Villeray in 2019 has been sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 12 years before he can be paroled. TVA’s headline that suggests Noah Pépin is being locked up “far from rehabilitation” could be misleading: it was the judge who said the fact that Pépin walked around armed with a knife suggests he’s not going to be easy to reform.
