A man charged with stabbing a 48-year-old accountant as he entered a downtown movie theatre has pleaded guilty.
Julian McKay, 40, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault for stabbing Kelly Lutz on Feb. 13, 2015.
Lutz was headed into the theatre to pick up movie passes for his kids when McKay ran at him. Lutz fled into the movie theatre entranceway. McKay followed, stabbing Lutz five times.
McKay was sentenced to three-and-a-half years Wednesday in Saskatoon Provincial Court.
With credit for time spent in custody awaiting trial, he has 21 months left to serve.
McKay will be subject to two years’ probation upon his release, with conditions that he not consume alcohol or any drug not prescribed to him.
He will also be required to attend any scheduled medical appointments.
The sentence also includes a 10-year weapons prohibition and an order that he submit a DNA sample to a national database.
