More jail for dad who killed daughter’s boyfriend

Saskatchewan father to serve another 18 months

A Saskatchewan dad convicted of killing his daughter’s boyfriend will service 18 more months in jail. Kim Walker says he shot James Hayward in 2003 to save his daughter from drugs. In a highly publicized trial in May, Walker was found not guilty of second-degree murder and instead found guilty of manslaughter for shooting Hayward five times. Walker was sentenced Wednesday to eight more years in prison, but the judge deducted the six and a half years for time served in remand.
