Cory Vallee was found guilty of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder back in June. The first charge carries a sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.

For the conspiracy charges, he will serve a second, concurrent sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years.

The murder charge stems from the fatal 2009 shooting of 27-year-old Kevin LeClair, a gang associate of the Bacon brothers, in a busy Langley parking lot.

The court found he also conspired to kill Jamie, Jarrod and Jonathan Bacon during the 2008-2009 gang war between the UN Gang and the Red Scorpions.
