A Calgary man who killed his girlfriend’s three-year-old daughter because she interrupted his video game can apply for parole in 8½ years.
A judge says Justin Bennett should serve 14 years of his life sentence before he’s eligible for release but took into account the time he has already served in custody.
Bennett was convicted of second-degree murder almost three years ago in the death of Ivy Wick.
Ivy was injured on Sept. 27, 2017, and died eight days later in hospital due to head and brain injuries.
Bennett later confessed to undercover police officers that he snapped when the child interrupted his video game, smashing her head and throwing her against a wall.
A life sentence is automatic with a second-degree murder conviction, with parole eligibility set between 10 and 25 years.
