UPDATE: No parole for 70 years for man who murdered three women in Ottawa Valley
A 60-year-old man convicted of killing three women during an hour-long rampage in the Ottawa Valley two years ago has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 70 years.
Basil Borutski was convicted late last month of first-degree murder in the fatal shootings of Anastasia Kuzyk and Nathalie Warmerdam, and of second-degree murder in the strangling of Carol Culleton.
All three murders were committed on Sept. 22, 2015, in the space of less than an hour.

Justice Robert Maranger ruled Wednesday that Borutski will serve two consecutive life sentences for first-degree murder followed by at least 20 years for second-degree murder.
Families of his victims called on the judge to keep Borutski away from society during a sentencing hearing Tuesday in a packed Pembroke, Ont., courtroom.
Borutski showed no emotion as the families of his three victims told of their heartbreak through victim impact statements.
