A former Canadian kid star who acted in the hit television shows “Riverdale” and “Supernatural” has been sentenced to life in prison for the killing of his mother.
Ryan Grantham, 24, pleaded guilty in March to second-degree murder for the killing of Barbara Waite. He admitted to fatally shooting his 64-year-old mother on March 31, 2020, with a single gunshot to the back of the head while she played the piano.
During his sentencing hearing in June, authorities revealed that the then-21-year-old man also planned to drive to Ottawa to kill Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The following day, he packed his car with guns, ammunition, as well as 12 Molotov cocktails. He also brought Google Maps directions to Rideau Cottage, where Trudeau lives.
Grantham also thought of driving to the university where he was enrolled to commit a mass shooting, authorities said. But later that night he drove to the Vancouver Police Department building in East Vancouver and turned himself in.
