Johnathon was stabbed 71 times in November 2003 and stuffed into the crawl space at his home. His sibling, Kevin Madden, now 19, was convicted of the murder last February and on Friday received a life sentence with no chance for parole for a decade.
Because Madden has already served three years, he will be eligible for parole in seven. The first two years of his sentence will be served in a youth facility.
"What was so striking about meeting with this gentleman was his absolute lack of remorse," Dr. Ian Swayze said. "He really had no reflection. He was angry at the system. He was angry at his family, not at himself for his behaviour."
The judge said Friday there is "credible evidence that he suffers from a deeply entrenched psychological disorder and psychopathy" and that he remains a danger to the public. Because of that McCombs said a youth sentence would be "inadequate".
