Forty-two-year-old Cory Daniel Barry was convicted of second-degree murder in the killing of 15-year-old Justin Wendland.
The boy was attacked at a bus stop in June 2010 outside the Times-Colonist newspaper building in downtown Victoria.
Barry was homeless at the time of the killing.
The Crown wanted parole eligibility set at as much as 15 years, but the judge accepted the defence submission of 10 years. (CFAX,CTV)
