Bruce McArthur Sentenced To Life In Prison

Serial killer Bruce McArthur has been sentenced to life in prison on eight counts of first-degree murder.

He'll be eligible for parole in 25 years when he's 91.

Justice John McMahon made the decision this morning saying McArthur's age was part of the reason he chose the 25-year parole option.

The Crown was asking for 50 year before parole eligibility. 

McMahon said McArthur being 67, pleading guilty and waiving his right a preliminary trial all factored into his decision.

The former self-employed landscaper killed eight men with ties to Toronto's gay village.

He also hid the remains of those men in planters on a property in the city.
