Timeline in case of serial killer Bruce McArthur

Serial killer Bruce McArthur sentenced to life in prison

Toronto's police chief says the sentence handed down on February 8 to serial killer Bruce McArthur means the man will never see daylight again.

McMahon said that even if McArthur lives to 91, the chances of him getting parole are remote at best.

Last week, McArthur, a 67-year-old, self-employed gardener, pleaded guilty to eight counts of first-degree murder.

For murders so brutal and so horrific, prosecutors wanted McArthur to serve 50 years before he can apply for parole.

"It's not enough for the families, it's not enough for the lives lost and it's not enough for the community", Nicole Borthwick, a friend of Andrew Kinsman, told CBC after the sentencing.

Bruce McArthur, a landscaper and former mall Santa who killed and dismembered eight men between 2010 and 2017, was sentenced Friday to life in prison, according to CNN network partner CTV News.

McArthur murdered Skandaraj Navaratnam, Abdulbasir Faizi, Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, Kirushna Kanagaratnam, Dean Lisowick, Selim Esen and Andrew Kinsman between September 2010 and June, 2017. The remains of the eighth victim were recovered from a nearby ravine.

Most of McArthur's victims were refugees and immigrants who frequented gay bars and clubs in the rapidly gentrifying area of the city where many LGBTQ citizens live.

Serial killer Bruce McArthur is being sentenced Friday.

Justice John McMahon called McArthur a sexual predator who killed for his own "warped sick gratification" and said the victims suffered slow and painful deaths.

Police had faced criticism over their handling of the case, with an independent review being conducted into how missing persons cases are handled, after McArthur was able to conduct a seven year killing spree.

Faizi's widow, Kareema, said that she now works 18 hours or more a day to support their daughters, who were 6 and 10 when he disappeared in 2010.

At a press conference, lead investigator Detective Hank Idsinga said the Kinsman murder hadn't fit the profile of McArthur's other victims, and this led to his capture.

McArthur, who admitted the killings last month, sat quietly in court, hunched over, hands folded in his lap, as a row of police detectives - who have described the investigation as Toronto's largest ever - watched from directly behind.

Because numerous facts presented at the hearing were so lurid, prosecutors cautioned people against remaining in court to hear them.

January 17, 2018 - Police uncover evidence suggesting McArthur was responsible for both Kinsman and Esen's deaths, along with the deaths of other unidentified people.

Several members of the gay community told reporters outside the courthouse they were disappointed McArthur did not receive a harsher penalty, while others accepted that he would likely die behind bars.

June 26, 2017 - Andrew Kinsman, 49, is reported missing.

He then posed their bodies for photographs, with numerous images featuring the same fur coat.

In McArthur's bedroom, they found John naked and handcuffed to the bed.

Asked about allegations of bias, Meaghan Gray, a spokeswoman for the Toronto police, said the force launched two investigations, Project Houston and Project Prism, "to do everything possible to locate the missing men".

"This is a crime of stark horror", Cantlon said in a statement.

But then he said "two factors unique to this case" prevented him from doing so.
