Convicted murderer Christopher Alexander’s day parole has been revoked.
A Parole Board of Canada report says Alexander began using drugs after a relationship failed, and that he’s also facing sexual assault charges stemming from that relationship.
The report goes on to say his case management team was surprised by his “downward spiral.”
Initially, the parole board reported that Alexander was in a “positive relationship” and was “highly motivated and fully engaged” in the community.
But the latest report notes that despite a period of stability during his day parole, he’s still unable to use problem-solving skills, cope with stress, recognize high-risk situations, and that he wasn’t “open and honest” with his parole supervisor.
In revoking his day parole, the parole board noted the gravity of his initial offence, and the charges he’s currently facing.
Parole board officials granted Alexander day parole in 2015 when he secured employment and showed progress in his rehabilitation.
The 34-year old was given a life sentence for the 1998 second-degree murder of Linda LaFranc in Terrace.
In April, the Crown approved sexual assault charges against Alexander after his former partner alleged he had sex with her while she was “incapacitated by intoxication.” He was arrested at his Abbotsford halfway house in June.
