A family’s journey for justice has a starting point.
On the morning of July 3, six-week-old Nikosis Jace Cantre was found injured at a home on Waterloo Crescent. He was taken to hospital, where he later died.
Family said the boy’s mother found him bruised and bloody, as though he had been beaten, in his playpen.
A 16-year-old girl, who had allegedly been taken in by the family, is charged with second-degree murder in Cantre’s death.
At a hearing Monday, court heard the Crown is seeking an adult sentence for the accused.
It’s a move the boy’s family has been calling for since learning of the infant’s death.
The maximum sentence for a youth convicted of second-degree murder is seven years’ custody and supervision.
