-- Toronto -- A paroled murderer who stabbed a man during a crackhouse binge has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Kevin Humphrey, 43, was on parole from a life sentence when he stabbed Richard Kent multiple times with a folding knife and then slit his throat on Oct. 16, 2006 in a crack house near Church and Wellesley Sts.

Months before, despite three breaches of parole, he was paroled again when an expert deemed him manageable in the community.

Police believe a critically injured teenager was shot and dumped from a car on a Jane St. sidewalk Tuesday night.

The young victim, who carried no identification, was on life-support at Sunnybrook Health Centre, where he was not expected to live, police said.

“He’s a young guy. We don’t know who he is or where he came from. We’re canvassing the area and need some witnesses to come forward,” says Insp. Dave Saunders.

Mr. Latimer is serving a life sentence for the murder of his disabled daughter Tracy.

The parole board denied him parole in December, saying, among other things, that he showed no remorse for his actions.

“The panel that denied his parole was plainly more interested in extracting a tearful apology from Mr. Latimer than it was in performing its proper function.”
