Man who killed two to live in Saskatoon
A man who had killed two people in North Battleford is being reintegrated back into society.
In 2004, Layne Bobby Dean Larose was found not criminally responsible for the 2002 axe murders because he suffers from a mental illness. He has been in residence at the Saskatchewan Hospital in North Battleford.
Family members of David Kennedy and Hughie Sayers aren't happy with the news of Larose's release.
Roxanne Kennedy, the cousin of David Kennedy, has a message for the City of Saskatoon.
“I think everybody in Saskatoon should be aware that this person is in their community.”
Although a psychiatrist has deemed Larose mentally ill, Roxanne doesn't believe that justifies his release.
“The reality is he killed two people. He shouldn’t be (released). He should still be locked up.”
Saskatoon Police aren't too worried themselves. They haven't been notified to keep an eye out for Larose because he is not a high risk.
Larose will be under the watch of a mental health worker.
