Troubled 14 Year Old Welland Girl Gets 7 Years For Murder

It was 2 years ago, when the 14 year old foster child killed three-year-old Matthew Reid in a Welland foster home.

The killer, now 16 and whose identity is protected by the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was sentenced Friday for the murder of the boy, who was found dead the morning of Dec. 15, 2005. She left a note under his head that read “I know what his last words were before he died”.

She will spend the next four years in prison followed by three years in supervised living in the community. By then, she will be 23 and a free woman.
