Men sentenced to 7 and 5 years for killing firefighter in downtown attack

Geordie Wood, 24, and Renelle McDougal, 23, both pleaded guilty in June to manslaughter in the 2016 death of Weenusk, 26.


Wood and McDougal were originally charged with second-degree murder, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter in June 2018 as part of a plea deal.


The Crown asked for 10 years in prison for Wood and nine for McDougal. The defence sought seven years for Wood and two years for McDougal, followed by three years of probation. 


Wood's sentence means he gets three years on top of the time he served since the killing.


Geordie Wood was represented by Scott Newman.
