Wellwood, now 28, was sentenced to life in prison in March 2010 for the murder of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor. I'm here.

Wellwood, then 16, and his 17-year-old, Cameron Moffat, lured 12th grade students to Wellwood's house in Langford, where they bound, gagged, and sexually assaulted them. In addition, they beat, suffocated, and mutilated with knives for several hours.

They put her body in a freezer and the next day, galloping her goose on her trail and set it on fire. On March 19, 2010, her badly burned body was found under a pedestrian bridge.

Convicted as an adult, her teenager pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison in 2011. 10 years parole. Both were eligible for parole in 2018.

A court-prepared psychological evaluation at the time assessed Welwood as being at high risk for violence against his intimate partner. Psychologists concluded that Welwood had many of the diagnostic criteria for psychopathy, sexual sadism, and necrophilia.

"At his sentencing, the judge said that the murder was too horrifying and that words cannot adequately describe the inhumane atrocities you and your accomplices displayed. "The judge noted that you and your accomplice planned to sexually assault and kill the victim," the parole board said in a ruling released today. The judge noted that you minimized your own participation and pointed the finger at your accomplices.”

Wellwood filed for Day parole in August 2019, Escorted temporary absence from mission institution, but was refused.

At a hearing on August 4, 2022, the Canadian Corrections Service recommended against her parole.

A recent psychological evaluation completed in April concluded that Wellwood's risk of violent and sexual reoffending remains high, according to a parole board decision.

A psychologist found that Wellwood continued to use sex as a way to deal with negative emotions. He said he did not make contact, called the murder an "event", and did not use Kimberly's name. concluded that the risk was too high. He appears to have a deep-seated sexual deviance that began around the time of his death and acted in the most violent ways against innocent women," the judge said.

The board is also concerned that Wellwood had written to co-defendant Moffat before Moffat's case management team found it inappropriate.

Wellwood continues to have emotional outbursts and tries to hurt himself. He remains interested in dangerous sexual thoughts and controlling sex, the decision said.
