Duke of York Tavern shooter says judge didn’t give enough weight to his First Nations heritage

The heartless killer whose hail of gunfire outside the Duke of York Tavern in 2008 killed Bailey Zaveda and seriously injured four others says his aboriginal heritage should get him a shorter sentence.

Kyle Weese, now 31, is safely behind bars, serving a life term at Millhaven with no possibility of parole for 22 years. But he has filed an appeal, scheduled to be heard next month, where he contends the sentencing judge didn’t give enough weight to his First Nations background — and that should shave six years off the time he must wait before applying for release.
