On Wednesday the 24-year-old actor was given a life sentence at the British Columbia Supreme Court in Vancouver. According to the CBC reports in Canada, he will not be eligible for parole up to 14 years. Justice Kathleen Ker reportedly said that the shocking statements made by the victim’s loved ones, including Grantham’s sister, highlighted the incident’s terrible consequences. She went on to say that the actor’s “saving grace” was that he was sufficiently aware of his behavior and didn’t go on the attack. Speaking about Grantham’s mental health problems, Ker said that the actor had been struggling for weeks before the shooting and had been watching violent content on the dark web.
