A Calgary man has been sentenced to 11 years in prison following the death of his girlfriend more than three years ago.
Luke Anthony Macleod was originally charged with second-degree murder in the death of Sheri Carpen.
The 31-year-old’s body was found in a home on Pine Tree Bay N.E. in March 2015.
At the time, investigators said Macleod claimed his girlfriend died by as a result of a suicide.
Nearly eight months later, he was charged in her death.
Macleod, 34, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in April.
In court on Tuesday, the 34-year-old was sentenced to 11 years behind bars. He was given credit for 15 days of pre-trial custody.
