PRINCE GEORGE - The northern B.C. man who killed four women has been given a life sentence without the chance of parole for 25 years.
Cody Legebokoff's conviction on four counts of first-degree murder automatically assigns him the life sentence.
B.C. Supreme Court Justice Glen Parrett told the court as he sentenced Legebokoff that the man fabricated the claim that unnamed drug dealers killed the women.
Parrett said that the murders were not the actions of a simple killer but of something infinitely worse.
A jury convicted the 24-year-old last week of killing Loren Leslie, Jill Stuchenko, Cynthia Mass and Natasha Montgomery in 2009 and 2010.
Legebokoff won't be eligible for parole until November 2035.
