34 year old Kelly Ellard scheduled to attend day parole hearing Tuesday
She waived her right to a full parole hearing four times while serving her life sentence.
But Ellard is eligible for day parole.
She applied for release several months ago.
Reena Virk’s grandfather told CHEK News he unhappy with Ellard’s potential release.
Mukand Pallan says Ellard has not been a good prisoner, and most importantly, she has never apologized for the crime.
He doesn’t feel she deserves parole.
Kelly Ellard was 15 years old in November 1997 when she smashed 14 year old Reena Virk’s head against a tree.
Then she held the Grade 9 student’s head underwater until she stopped moving.
