Dad gets 3 years in freezing deaths

March 07, 2009|Times Wire Reports

The father of two young girls who froze to death because of his heavy drinking was sentenced to three years in prison by a Canadian judge.

Saskatchewan Provincial Court Judge Barry Morgan said he believed Christopher Pauchay was remorseful but he noted that Pauchay, 25, has a lengthy criminal record and had done little to control his drinking.

Pauchay had been trying to walk to a neighbor's home in January 2008 with his daughters Santana and Kaydence, aged 1 and 3, on a night of almost blizzard-like conditions. The toddlers were wearing only diapers and light shirts. The girls were later discovered frozen to death in the snow.
