A Calgary man who killed his mother in 2013 has been sent to jail.
Lois Murray was found dead inside her Ranchlands home on Thanksgiving 2013.
She had been shot in the back of the neck.
Her son, 32-year-old Andrew Douglas Murray, was originally charged with first-degree murder.
Court heard he had an “alcohol-induced psychotic disorder” at the time.
In April, Murray pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter.
Alberta Justice confirms he has been handed a sentence of nine years in prison, but with credit for time already served, he has about five years left.
The Crown had been looking for 12-15 years, while the defense was asking for six years.
