Steven Bragg will be convicted early next month of killing Vctoria Head.
Bragg was put on trial for murder in the first degree at the end of May. But instead, he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, resulting in an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for at least 10 years. That’s what the defense is asking for, while the Crown seeks 15 to 17 years before Bragg can apply.
Yesterday, the court heard submissions and impact statements about victims to help Supreme Court Justice Donald Burrage with his decision.
Bragg strangled Victoria Head with a trunk and hid her body in the woods at O’Brien’s Farm Road early on Memorial Day 2017.
He has been in custody since the verdict was introduced in May, and will be sentenced on November 4.
