A man convicted of manslaughter in the death of an Indigenous woman after throwing a trailer hitch at her from a moving vehicle in Thunder Bay, Ont., has been released on day parole, two years into his eight-year sentence.
A written decision by the Parole Board of Canada says 24-year-old Brayden Bushby was granted day parole in August for a period of six months, but he was denied full parole.
The board says Bushby’s day parole conditions include not consuming alcohol or drugs, following a substance treatment plan and not having contact with the victim’s family.
Bushby was sentenced in 2021 to eight years in prison for killing 34-year-old Barbara Kentner in 2017 by throwing a trailer hitch at her after drinking heavily with friends.
Kentner was seriously injured in the attack and died several months later in hospital.
