Myles Sanderson, along with his brother Damien, are accused of murdering 10 people and injuring 18 on the James Bay Cree Nation and the town of Weldon in Saskatchewan, Canada on Sunday, Sept 4, 2022.
Global News reports that Myles had been released by the Parole Board earlier this year.
Sanderson, who was sentenced in 2018, was initially paroled in August 2021, and his parole was suspended in Nov. 2021 due to violations, Global News reports.
Three months later, he was released on parole a second time, and Global News provides the details on what the parole board said about Sanderson at his second release:
“To your benefit, you do seem to have maintained sobriety, obtained employment, engaged a therapist, were engaged in cultural ceremonies, had obtained a home for your family, and appeared to have been making good progress on reintegration,” the Board wrote.
“It is the Board’s opinion that you will not present an undue risk to society if released on statutory release and that your release will contribute to the protection of society by facilitating your reintegration into society as a law abiding citizen,” the decision read.
Myles, who is still at large, has been charged with three first-degree murders. His brother Damien, who also participated in the attacks, was found dead yesterday on the reserve.
