Sentence of life imprisonment pronounced in the swarming of Luka Gordic


A man was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Luka Gordic in front of a 7-Eleven in Whistler, California, almost four years ago.

The family of the murdered teenager began to applaud and applaud when the verdict was announced in the Vancouver court.

The killer can not be identified because he was 17 at the time of the crime. He was found guilty of murder in second degree in October 2017.

Two other men who were found guilty of manslaughter on Gordic's death were sentenced to 36 months in jail and probation.

The three were part of a larger group that invaded and killed teenager Burnaby in November 2015.

The Crown said it would be looking for adult sentences in their cases.

A fourth person, Arvin Golic, was also convicted of Gordic's death.

Golic, who was 18 at the time, was found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced in December 2017 to seven years in prison for his role in the murder.

Subtracting time served, he was sentenced to spend five years behind the bars.

Gordic had been in Whistler with some friends for a long weekend trip in May, when he was killed.

He was separated from his group when he entered the convenience store to buy a packet of chips on May 17. The teenager was attacked when he left and died of several stab wounds.

Gordic has been described as a "sweet and simple guy" who loved his friends and family – especially his older siblings.

Police never specified a motive, but the family believed there was enough evidence to justify a second-degree murder charge – something they put pressure on during and after Golic's murder trial.
