Wesley Guzylak has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder charges in the death of Cotie Weekley. The 31-year old single mom and former girlfriend of the accused was ambushed and stabbed to death outside her home on Simcoe St. N. on the night of January 22, 2017. The attack was witnessed by the young woman's daughter who was just seven years old at the time. The Crown and defence counsel submitted a joint proposal for life in prison with no possibility for parole for 14 years and nine months. Guzylak admitted that alcohol and jealousy fueled the rage that led him to the killing. The hearing continues in June.
