VANCOUVER, CANADA: Ryan Grantham, 24, who played Jeffery Augustine in ‘Riverdale’, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the first 14 years for killing his mother on Wednesday, September 21.

He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder earlier this year for shooting his mother in March 2020. As per reports, Grantham shot his mother Barbara Waite, 64, in the back of her head while she was playing the piano in their home in British Columbia on March 31, 2020.

The actor also confessed to his attempt to kill Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as he was caught with three guns, some ammunition, 12 Molotov cocktails, some camping supplies, and a sheet with directions to Trudeau’s Rideau Cottage.

While delivering the sentence Justice Kathleen Ker reflected on the “tragic and sad” particulars of the crime at the British Columbia Supreme Court in Vancouver.

According to CBC, the “Riverdale” actor killed his mother with a.22 calibre rifle. Later, he confessed to the crime and exhibited his mother’s body in a GoPro video that was later aired in court.

On camera, Grantham remarked, “I gave her a headshot to the back. She would have recognised me shortly when she realised it was me.”

According to the police statement, Grantham also played with Molotov bombs after the tragedy, bought beer and marijuana, watched Netflix, and covered his mother’s body with a sheet.

He placed lighted candles around his mother’s dead body and hung a rosary from the piano the next day before loading his car and attempting to assassinate Canada’s prime minister.

He changed his mind, though, and chose to carry out a mass shooting at Simon Fraser University, his former school, or the Lions Gate Bridge. Despite this, he drove to the Vancouver Police Department and confessed to killing his mother before turning himself in.
