Convicted for the murder of his wife, Michael White obtains a new day parole

Michael White was convicted of murdering his wife, Liana White, in 2006. The 29-year-old woman was pregnant.

Michael White, 45, who was convicted in 2006 of murdering his pregnant wife and dumping her body in a ditch, is being granted a further six months on day parole.

The Edmontonian was granted the additional day parole after appearing before the Parole Board of Canada earlier this month. The Commission released the reasons for its decision on Thursday.

She explains that Michael White had no problem living in a halfway house, and that he now spends four nights a week at his fiancée's house.

In his written decision, the parole board also noted that Michael White had been in a romantic relationship since January 2019, that he got engaged last December, and that his fiancee had a full understanding of his story.

This relationship has been closely supervised, and there have been no known issues or stressors. In fact, this relationship is considered strong, mature and long-lasting, she added.

Furthermore, the document mentions that Michael White has shown himself to be motivated and willing to ask for help, and that he works full time.

The 45-year-old man, who was being held at Beaver Creek federal prison in Gravenhurst, Ontario, had already been granted day parole extensions twice since February 2021.

< p class="e-p">These favors had been granted to him with the obligation to respect a certain number of conditions. He had to have a psychological follow-up to manage the stress related to the reintegration into social life and healthy relationships. He also had to report any relationships or friendships he developed with women.

Michael White was found guilty of killing his wife Liana White, 29, and dumping her body in a ditch more than 17 years ago. She was pregnant with their second child at the time.

Liana White was reported missing in July 2005, after she died not shown to work at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton. His decomposed body was found a week later.

In 2006, Michael White was sentenced to life in prison for second degree murder and indignity to a corpse. His conviction was accompanied by the ineligibility of parole for 17 years.

He had appealed, but his appeal was rejected by the most high court of Alberta.

The new day parole he has just been granted will give him, according to the Board, more opportunities to spend the night in the community, which could help in the continued development of her relationship.
