A provincial court judge has sentenced a man to seven years behind bars for killing a woman in Pelican Narrows.


Judge Gerald Morin handed down the sentence at a hearing in the community yesterday.


32-year-old Leslie Linklater was originally facing a charge of second-degree murder over the matter, but pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter.


On January 5th, the RCMP discovered the body of a 22-year-old woman in a home on the reserve.


Her name was never released.
