Crown to seek life sentence for Eaton Centre shooter convicted of manslaughter.
TORONTO — Prosecutors say they will seek a life sentence for a man convicted of manslaughter in a shooting at Toronto's Eaton Centre that claimed the lives of two people seven years ago. Crown attorneys say while Christopher Husbands was acquitted of second-degree murder and found guilty on lesser charges in the mall shooting, the killings should be considered "near murder" and sentenced as such. Defence lawyers say they will seek a fixed sentence but note they are waiting for pre-sentencing risk assessments to inform their submissions. Both sides are expected to make submissions on a sentence next month.
