A Surrey man has been sent to jail for fatally stabbing a younger man to death in the apartment the pair shared with the deceased’s mother.
William Arnold Engebretsen, 56, was sentenced in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster on Wednesday (July 8) to four years prison.
He received credit for the 105 days he spent in pretrial custody, leaving three years, seven months remaining in his sentence.
Police were called to an apartment near 128 Street and 95 Avenue on Nov. 25, 2012, where 35-year-old Jeremy McLellan was suffering from stab wounds. McLellan died in hospital.
Police at the time said Engebretsen lived at the home with McLellan and McLellan’s mom.
