A Calgary man who fatally stabbed his roommate in 2011 is back behind bars after another brush with the law.
Jeffrey William Langdon, 47, was freed on statutory release on December 6th.
Just three weeks later, he was back in custody after he was arrested for shoplifting food and cups from a Calgary mall.
Langdon told the Parole Board of Canada it was a “stupid decision.”
He had been serving a 5.5-year sentence for manslaughter in the November 2011 stabbing death of Norman Andrews.
During a party at a notorious drug house on Kilkenny Road S.W., Langdon got into a fight with his girlfriend and Andrews intervened, but the girlfriend stabbed Langdon. Andrews refused to call 911 and that’s when he was stabbed.
In October 2013, Langdon pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
After the shoplifting incident in December, the Parole Board of Canada held a hearing to decide what to do with Langdon.
In a written decision, the board said Langdon’s case management team believes his risk is no longer manageable in the community.
“You have a history of poor compliance over a number of releases, during both of your federal sentences,” the decision read. “You were suspended twice on day parole on the current sentence.”
“You were unlawfully at large for a time during your subsequent period of day parole; you were subsequently revoked.”
The Parole Board said Langdon’s statutory release is now set for May 10, while his sentence officially ends in July.
