A judge is recommending that an aboriginal woman convicted of killing her two-year old son spend 26 months in a “healing lodge” as punishment.
Justice William Tilleman agreed with a request from Livia Starlight’s lawyer that the woman should be remanded to the Okinawa Ohci Healing Lodge, located in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan.
Starlight pleaded guilty to manslaughter after being charged with second-degree murder. In September 2014, Starlight threw her child across the room. Traezlin Denzel Starlight died seven days later.
