    A mother in montreal whose son was killed by ball is passed in addition to his rage and his wrath against one who has participated in the murder, and now hopes that the accused draws lessons from the drama to become an asset to the company.

    “The crime has brought me to the brink of insanity, but I made the choice to forgive him ; I hope he will use his time in a cell in order to learn a profession and to forgive” emotionally launched Dominique Narcisse, this Wednesday at the palais de justice of Montreal.

    Ms. Narcisse was present at the hearing of Ian Charbonneau, a man of 31-year-old accused of the murder of Ali Husain Jean, which occurred on January 11, 2014 in what looks like a robbery that went wrong.

    On that day, the victim, 27-year-old was in an apartment in Lachine when she was fatally shot. Charbonneau, who had been arrested three years later, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a reduced charge of manslaughter and robbery. At the suggestion of the lawyers, he has been sentenced to 11 years in prison.


    Head low and sat in the box of the accused, Charbonneau seemed to be shaken by the testimonies of relatives present in the courtroom.

    “I wanted to put an end to my days, I was consumed by despair, explained Jamilah Jean, the sister of the victim, speaking directly to the accused. I don’t remember the last time my family laughed, she was happy. “

    The mother of the victim has also suffered, she expressed to the court, saying to relive the murder of his son ” continuous “, which has even led her to be hospitalized for severe depression. But despite the pain, she finally decided to take the path of forgiveness.

    “I don’t want to listen to those voices who seek revenge,” said Ms. Jean. It is sometimes hard to forgive, but it makes the mind lighter. This is why I forgive him [the accused], while the world must forgive. “

    Describing his son as an artist close to his family and loved helping the homeless, Ms. Jean has since founded an organization in the name of his son, to come to the assistance of the community. It also organize a day of cleaning up a park.

    The accused, who is represented by counsel, François Gauthier, did not wish to address the court before being sentenced.

    “I have nothing to bring to the table “, he said in a low voice.

    In addition to the 11 years of the penitentiary, Charbonneau was banned from owning firearms for the rest of his days.
