Jonathan Styres’s killer will be sentenced in April

The man who shot Jonathan Styres in the cold early morning hours of Feb. 4, 2016 will learn his fate on April 12.

Peter Khill, the Binbrook man who was ultimately charged with manslaughter in the death of Styres, could face between four to 15 years in prison for his crime.

Khill was found guilty in the shooting death of Styres, 29 at the time of his death, after a third trial wrapped up in December in the high-profile case.

He was originally acquitted of all charges but after the family appealed, a second trial was ordered. That trial was quickly abandoned when a judge felt that a certain jury member was in a conflict of interest for being involved in volunteer work with Hamilton Police.

The third trial, which took place in December 2022, found Khill guilty of manslaughter.

The shooting occurred with Khill went outside his Binbrook home to confront Styres, who was rummaging around in Khill’s truck, and shot the man, later claiming self-defence.

Khill has been out on $100,000 bail.
