The person responsible for the 2014 death of Jaylen Sandhu in Surrey has been sentenced.
Lekendric Martez Smith was originally charged as a youth offender with second-degree murder.
However, he pleaded guilty to an adult charge of manslaughter and, while he received a sentence of eight years in prison, will serve just under seven years with time served.
Smith is not allowed to own firearms and must also provide a DNA sample to officials.
Sandhu was 17 when he was stabbed in December of 2014 in the 163-hundred block of 88th Avenue. He died in hospital later.
Sandhu and Smith are believed to have known each other.
