Twisted Triple-Murderer Derek Saretzky Sentenced to Life in Prison, No Parole for 75 Years
Convicted triple-murderer Derek Saretzky will be 97 when he is eligible for parole after being sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 75 years.
Justice William Tilleman said “I am satisfied he is dangerous” in handing down the consecutive parole ineligibilities.
Saretzky was convicted June 28 of three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Hailey Dunbar-Blanchette, her father Terry Blanchette, 27, and 69-year-old Hanne Meketech in Alberta’s Crowsnest Pass. They also found him guilty of causing an indignity to Hailey’s body.
It took jurors just three hours to reach the verdicts in the Sept. 2015 case.
Seven victim impact statements were read at the first part of the sentencing hearing on June 29.
