LETHBRIDGE, Alta. - A southern Alberta man with mental health issues has been sentenced to five years in jail for stabbing his parents.

Nigel Vermeulen, who is 29, had pleaded guilty in Lethbridge court to one count of attempted murder and another of assault with a weapon.

Court heard he stabbed his 72-year-old father in the neck and his 62-year-old mother in the leg.

The sentence was recommended as part of a joint submission by the Crown and defence.

An assessment at the Southern Alberta Forensic Psychiatry Centre determined that he was fit to stand trial and did not meet the criteria to be found not criminally responsible due to a mental disorder.

The son of a couple found fatally stabbed at their home in Eden Prairie has been sentenced to 61 years in prison for killing them with a screwdriver. Police were called to Lehman’s parents ’ house on May 25 after receiving a welfare check call when Robert Lehman failed to show up for work.

The 40- year -old allegedly stabbed them at their home in Granby, Connecticut. The couple were taken to the hospital and are said to be in stable condition. Christopher Rich from Granby, Connecticut, has been charged with attempting to murder his parents after the couple were found with stab wounds.

Vermeulen has been diagnosed as having autism spectrum disorder, selective mutism, delusional disorder and an unspecified personality disorder.

"It seems to me there is no rational explanation for the perpetration of these crimes by Mr. Vermeulen,” Provincial court Judge Eric Peterson said Wednesday before delivering the sentence.

"He is mentally ill, but not to the extent that it would excuse his conduct."

Court heard that Vermeulen’s parents became aware of his mental health problems when he was still very young.

He continued to live with them as an adult, having quit school early and never got a job.

Vermeulen would only leave the house to go for walks with his father or to get groceries with his mother.

On Feb. 11, Vermeulen’s mother woke to her husband screaming and a sharp pain in her knee.

A Youngstown man involved in a brutal 2016 stabbing will serve five years in prison. In October 2016, Hornbuckle and Amanda Wilhite, 34, of Market Street went to a Hilton Avenue home where Wilhite stabbed a man more than 30 times, according to investigators.

On May 31, 2014, in Waukesha, Wisconsin, 12- year -olds Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser lured their friend Payton Leutner into the woods and stabbed her 19 times in an attempt to impress the fictional character Slender Man .

She called out to Vermeulen but then found her husband bleeding heavily from the neck and called 911.

The Crown says he was lucky to survive the wound.

Lethbridge Police later found Vermeulen not far from home and took him into custody.

During an interview in which he would only respond by writing, Vermeulen said he felt the only way he could start his own life was by killing his parents.

Police also found a journal entry that Vermeulen had entered into his computer before the stabbing attacks.

"Can’t sleep, hungry, so might as well kill my parents," he wrote according to the agreed statement of facts. "Going to knife them and hope it works … all that matters is killing them."

The Crown also noted that aside from the remorse demonstrated by entering a guilty plea, Vermeulen hasn’t shown any other signs of empathy towards his parents. (LethbridgeNewsNow)
