Jerry Hawley, who was convicted of manslaughter for starving his disabled brother Jamie to death, was sentenced to 20 years in jail on August 30.
Jerry had starved Jamie, who had both cerebral palsy and an intellectual disability, while collecting his disability checks.
When he died, Jamie was only 57 pounds, and his body covered in feces and bedsores, reported the Calgary Herald.
The defense had asked for a sentence between eight to 10 years while claiming that Jerry didn’t intend to kill his brother.
