Pickering native Nicholas Baig, who pleaded guilty to the 2017 murder of his pregnant wife, has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 17 years.

Arianna Goberdhan was found dead in Baig's parents' home on Winville Road in Pickering on the night of April 7, 2017. She was nine months pregnant at the time with the couple's first child - a little girl who she was going to name Asaara.

Baig, her estranged husband, was seen leaving on surveillance video and quickly became the prime suspect. The 25-year-old was arrested the following evening and was charged with first-degree murder.

‘Nothing will bring Zack back.’ Killers of man attacked near Yonge and Eglinton sentenced Zaher “Zack” Noureddine made the world a better place — both in his 25 years alive and after he was murdered. “His heart is still pumping, his lungs are still breathing,” said his father Hassan Noureddine, after two of the men responsible for killing his son were sentenced Monday, each to more than 10 years in prison. As an organ donor, Zack Noureddine’s heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, pancreas and other organs live on in other people, Hassan said. “This is what keeps us standing. He didn’t die in vain.” In December, a jury found Patrick Smith, 29, guilty of the second-degree murder of Noureddine and of assaulting Noureddine’s friend and co-worker Mitchell Conery.

On Thursday, Justice Jocelyn Speyer, who delivered the sentencing said, "The impact of his [Baig's] senseless act of cruelty was profound and crushing."

Speyer told the court Baig lacks insight into his behaviour.

"He calls what he did a mistake. He is tormented by the loss of his wife and his unborn child. He sees himself as a victim," she said.

The crown requested a period of parole ineligibility of up to 20 years. The defence suggested 15 years.

"The gravity of his [Baig's] crime is impossible to overstate," Speyer said, before she delivered her sentence ruling.

Outside of the Oshawa courthouse, friends of Goberdhan chanted, "End domestic violence now, break the silence now" and held signs calling for "Justice for Asaara" and to "Change the law" in regard to domestic violence.

"For my sister, I just wanted more ... It's just not fair, he took two lives from me, I will never get to have a niece, I will never get to have a sister again," Goberdhan's sister told Global News outside the courthouse.

"For future women in this situation, this is why we're asking that we need to get the government to understand that the law needs to be changed," her mother, Sherry Goberdhan said.

Arianna's uncle Frank Pedinelli spoke outside about his disappointment that Baig faced no additional charges in relation to the death of her unborn child.

"I feel very hollow here that there was very little said about Asaara and the fact that Asaara had some rights and that Asaara's life was taken," he said.

Arianna's family has started a petition to the House of Commons to recognize Asaara and to change the law in Canada in regard to murder of an unborn child.

Agreed Statement of Facts

According to the agreed statement of facts, Baig and Goberdhan dated on and off for about six years prior to getting married in November 2016. Goberdhan was already pregnant with the couple’s first child.

Over the years, there were many fights and in 2014 and 2016, Baig was charged with domestic assault. In both cases, the charges were withdrawn.

At some point between November 2016 and March 2017, Baig and Goberdhan engaged in a hostile text message exchange where Baig wrote to Goberdhan and called her vulgar names.

Vigil marks 25 years since Kelly Lynn Stewner was killed in broad daylight on Portage Ave. Dozens of family members and friends stood silent at a busy intersection in Winnipeg Monday evening, heads bowed in a moment of silence for the young woman who was killed there in broad daylight 25 years ago. Kelly Lynn Stewner was a month from her 24th birthday when she was murdered by her estranged husband, Bruce Stewner, on May 6, 1994. Debra Peary, Kelly's sister, remembers Kelly as a bright, brave woman who loved children and animals. Peary recalled how Kelly would bring Peary's young son to the convenience store where she worked and stand behind the counter with him on her hip, giving him change to hand over to customers.

Goberdhan went to the house around 6:30 p.m. Her dead body was removed from the house later that night. Police said she had been stabbed 17 times to her head, face, neck and body.
