16-year-old pleads guilty to second-degree murder
A teenager is expected to plead guilty to second-degree murder in connection with a stabbing death at a Kitchener apartment almost two years ago. Larry McDonald, 49, was knifed 19 times after he intervened in an argument in his apartment at 85 Green Valley Drive in March 2010. The 16-year-old teen was charged the next day with first-degree murder but according to the Record, will only plead guilty to second degree charges which involves the admittance to murder but no intention to kill.
Winter on its way soon
Suddenly feeling like you could actually use some snow? This is Canada after all. Why is the ground green this January as opposed to covered in a blanket of white? All that is about to change.
According to The Waterloo Region Record, after this Thursday, temperatures are set to plunge below the freezing mark. And that’s where they’re expected to stay for the foreseeable future.
