"Your institutional behaviour has been poor with involvement in the gang subculture, violence, substance abuse and threats to other inmates," the board wrote later that year when it denied him day parole. "Your release at this time would present undue risk to the public's safety." Delorme completed the sentence in 2013 and served several short stints in jail for offences including mischief and assault with a weapon, before his arrest last Friday. He, along with 27-year-old Colton Steinhauer and a 13-year-old boy, are charged with first-degree murder, robbery and other offences stemming from the deadly holdups. All three appeared in court for the first time on the charges early this week. Delorme and Steinhauer had yet to retain lawyers.

Homicide detectives investigate at a Mac's convenience store in Edmonton on Friday, Dec.18, 2015. (John Ulan/CP)Police said two clerks working alone in two different Mac's stores were shot dead minutes apart by masked robbers who made off with small amounts of cash. Video footage showed the clerks had been co-operating before they were gunned down. Court records show the teen, who can't be named, is also facing charges from earlier this year that include robbery and weapons offences. On Nov. 20, he was released from custody with conditions that included he live with his grandmother. At the time of the Mac's killings, Steinhauer was wanted on warrants for failing to comply with a probation order. He was sentenced in June to three months in jail for uttering threats. The parole board documents detail how Delorme was raised by his parents in a home "free from any type of abuse," but he rebelled and started drinking and smoking marijuana at 15. He moved in with friends and was expelled from school in Grade 9. He first started committing crimes at 19.
