The report found the Correctional Service of Canada missed a number of warning signs in Gallese's case.

The Parole Board of Canada refused on Wednesday to release serial killer Allan Legere after hearing him blame others for the murders he committed and argue he could safely return to New Brunswick.

Gallese had been serving a sentence for second-degree murder in the killing of his ex-spouse in 2004.

Last February, Gallese pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree murder in Levesque's death and was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole for 25 years.
