A man from Fishing Lake has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after killing the mother of his child.
Thirty-year-old Marc Jess pled guilty to manslaughter on Tuesday in the death of 25-year-old Paige Crevier on Fishing Lake Metis Settlement in May 2018.
Jess originally was charged with first-degree murder.
With time served in pre-trial custody, Jess has just under 16 years in prison to serve, and will not be eligible for parole until halfway through the remainder of his sentence.
An agreed statement of facts into the court record detailed how alcohol and drugs were involved in the killing.
