‘Riverdale’ & ‘Diary Of A Wimpy Kid’ Actor Ryan Grantham Sentenced To Life In Prison For Killing His Mother

According to new reports, the Canadian actor was 21-years-old when he shot his mother in the head as she played the piano at their home on March 31, 2020.

After fatally shooting his mother, it’s reported that Grantham then allegedly planned to kill Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Authorities found three guns, ammunition, 12 Molotov cocktails, campaign supplies and directions to Trudeau’s family home at Rideau Cottage.

Grantham never made it to Trudeau’s home, instead he turned himself into Vancouver police. After the killing of his mother, Grantham pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

On Wednesday (September 21), the actor was given a life sentence in the British Columbia Supreme Court; and for the next 14 years he will not be eligible for parole.

Speaking in court, Justice Kathleen Ker said that after listening to gripping statements from the victim’s loved ones, like her daughter and the actor’s sister, she saw the “life-shattering” impact of his actions.

Justice Ker added that the actor’s only moments of “saving grace” was (1) that he was fully aware of what he did, and (2), he did not continue going on a murder spree.

It’s also reported that the actor had been going through an “intense period of clinical depression” months before the crime; and that he had been viewing violent footage on the dark web.

According to Justice Ker, the actor is now getting psychiatric treatment while behind bars, and happens to be showing improvement.

Meanwhile, his lawyer, Chris Johnson, says that Grantham is not shocked at all by the sentencing that has been handed down to him.

Johnson said, “I think he anticipated what the judge gave him as a sentence.  think he’s pretty apprehensive about the whole thing. He’s a fairly tiny person, and to go to the prison system, I’m sure it’s a daunting and scary thought for him.”
