Warning: graphic and disturbing details.
In an Edmonton courtroom Wednesday, convicted murderer Silva Koshwal leaned back in the prisoner's box, eyes closed, head resting against the wooden wall behind him. Later, the prosecutor said it was "like he was sitting at the beach enjoying the sun."
Koshwal faces an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for 10 to 25 years for stabbing his former girlfriend Nadine Skow more than 100 times, then removing some of her organs.
Crown prosecutor Laurie Trahan said the crime scene was so horrific, at least one of the responding police officers had to take stress leave. She described the murder as senseless, callous and brutal.
Of the 101 stab wounds, the medical examiner determined 63 occurred while she was still alive.
"First he butchered her. Then after her death he eviscerated her," Trahan said. "This was an offence of significant gratuitous violence."
Koshwal was born in South Sudan and came to Canada in 1997. He has been a landed immigrant for 22 years and will automatically face deportation upon completion of his sentence.

Just killing the people that Canadians can’t be bothered to kill.
One of Justin Trudeau’s voters?
Can’t get any more Canadian than this savage.
Talk about soft on crime. Those Canadians have really fallen for the view that there are too many people in jail.
I figured as much.
The Tax Man cometh for Ms. Skow.
Import Third World
Become Third World
No death sentence in Canada?
Isn’t, by Canadian law, calling an a person of color a “butcher” tantamount to “hate speech”? Shouldn’t the prosecutor be prosecuted?
A native Edmontonite. Looks like his family has been there for generations going back to Hudson Bay Trading Company days.
He he...you made me look at the thread with that comment....

As Trooper would say - “He was a real Canadian”
That thing had a girlfriend? There must be some really desperate women out there.
