Ryan Grantham, an actor who has appeared in the CW show Riverdale and the film Diary of a Wimpy Kid, was found guilty of murdering his mother and has been sentenced to life in prison for the crime. The incident took place in their home in Canada.
According to the intarez.com, Grantham, 24, was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday after pleading guilty to second-degree murder earlier this year. A conviction for this level of murder carries an automatic sentence of life in prison.
On March 31, 2020, Grantham, who was then 21 years old, used a handgun to shoot his mother, Barbara Waite, who was 64 years old, in the back of the head while she was playing the piano.
The incident happened in the victim’s home in Squamish, about an hour outside of Vancouver.
Grantham quickly filmed a video confession following the murder. He then confessed to police that he had originally intended to assassinate Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and maybe carry out a mass shooting at a local university before changing his mind.
According to a report in the Intarez, he explained to the authorities that he killed his mother so that she would not have to cope with the fallout of his failed plots to assassinate Trudeau and open fire at a school. This was his rationale for carrying out the murder.
Wednesday’s hearing for Grantham’s punishment primarily served the purpose of determining when he will be eligible to petition for parole.
While the prosecution requested a waiting time of 17 to 18 years, Grantham’s defense asked for a period of merely 12 years. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the judge, Kathleen Ker, ruled that Grantham must serve 14 years in prison before being entitled to petition for parole.
Since the first of April 2020, Grantham has been incarcerated. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he was evaluated by two psychiatrists authorized by the court.
His attorney, Chris Johnson, claims that Grantham has significant problems related to his mental health.
According to what Johnson told the Intarez Reporter, the psychiatrists “agreed that at the time of this horrifying event, he was suffering from a significant depressive problem and a cannabis use issue,” among other mental health conditions.
Grantham has had roles in a variety of films and series both on and off the small screen. In addition to Riverdale and The Diary of a Wimpy Kid, he appeared in the episode of Supernatural that aired on television.
Collen Mashawana Foundation gives homeless SA woman and her family a new home.
If every single one of us worked toward making sure that our fellow human beings were provided with even the most basic of life’s necessities, the world would unquestionably change for the better. Even though people are living in truly deplorable conditions across the entirety of the country, there are still people and organizations doing their best to lift South Africans out of poverty.
The Collen Mashawana Foundation is an example of one of these kinds of organizations. The organization has brought relief to a family in South Africa that was previously residing in a shack, and this is without a doubt one of the most heartwarming scenes one could ever want to witness.
In a statement that was posted on Twitter by the organization:
“This past Sunday, I had the opportunity to spend some time with Meida, and our conversation got me thinking about what Mandela and other leaders from his generation could do to improve the lives of our people. His history serves as an inspiration for civil rights movements all across the world and continues to inspire me now, both as a component of my heritage and as I travel through my life.
The leaders of today have followed in their predecessors’ footsteps by making it a top priority for formerly disadvantaged people to participate in the mainstream economy. People like Meida who continue to endure the most challenging of situations are the kind of people I have made it my mission to bring up as a leader in this generation.
It’s evolved beyond merely being a contribution in my eyes. It is now more important to travel this path with them and work toward the ultimate goal of everyone’s inclusion over the long term.
The completion of Meida’s house was the aspect of the project that brought me the most sense of satisfaction as my coworkers and I laid bricks.
When I see her again, she will have just gotten the keys to her new house and will be the proud owner of her first business, which is going to be providing water to the residents of her town. This woman, who had previously been without any hope for the future, is about to embark on a new beginning that is full with hope, and I can’t wait to be there to see it.
The mission of the Collen Mashawana Foundation to pay Meida Ramuhala and her family a visit in Ha-Mudimeli for lunch as well as to lend a hand with the ongoing house construction work was a resounding success.
During our meal with Meida and her family, they discussed the difficulties they face on a daily basis due to the limited availability of water. They went on to explain the complexities of gaining access to water in their community, and as a result, the Collen Mashawana Foundation has committed to building a water borehole in their neighborhood.
