CTV is reporting that "Steven Bacon, the man who pleaded guilty to the second-degree murder of Nanaimo teen Makayla Chang in 2017, has received a life sentence. The courtroom was emotional when his sentence was read on Friday. He will be ineligible for parole for 20 years.
Chang was last seen outside a Nanaimo Tim Hortons in March 2017. She was 16 years old at the time of her disappearance.
Her body was found by police roughly two months later and her death was considered a homicide.
This is the sad result of grooming.
The judge's reason for sentence isposted on the courts website.
