Parolee sent back to jail after stabbing
Sep 06 2012
A man serving a life sentence for a 1970 murder breached his parole several times before stabbing a man in August.
Teddy E. Antoine, 60, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Nanaimo provincial court to aggravated assault for stabbing Dick Provost, 78, manager of the Resort on the Lake trailer park in Nanaimo.
Antoine, who received parole in 2005, "has breached his parole conditions numerous times, sometimes very serious violations," Crown prosecutor Ron Parsons told Judge Justine Saunders, who sentenced Antoine to two years, to run concurrently with his life sentence.
In the Aug. 21 incident, Antoine told Provost he wanted to sell his lot and mobile home at Resort on the Lake and move to Lantzville.
Provost sent some employees over to Antoine's unit to wash it and cut the grass.
"He told me to keep away from him, and I tried to explain that I was trying to help him," Provost said.
He said Antoine punched him in the head and a shouting match ensued.
Provost returned home and saw Antoine walking toward the park's office. Provost confronted Antoine, who had a butcher knife. Provost tried to grab the knife, but was cut on the arm, then stabbed six times.
