HAMILTON, ONT-Peter Khill, convicted in the 2016 shooting death of Six Nations’ Jonathan Styres will be sentenced April 12th.
A Superior Court Judge said Friday Khill is scheduled to return to a Hamilton court room April 12th for sentencing.

Khill attended the sentencing virtually. He ha been granted bail in December and has been out on a $100,000 bond until his sentencing.
A jury of 12 found Khill guilty last year of manslaughter. He shot and killed 29-year-old Jonathan Styres who had broken into his pickup truck in February 2016.
Khill was acquitted after a trial in 2018. A new trial was ordered and ended in a mistrial. A third trial resulted in him being convicted of manslaughter in December.
