Convicted serial killer Bruce McArthur has been taken to hospital following an alleged prison assault, according to a report from Global News.
According to the report, the alleged assault occurred during the evening of Thursday, April 11 at Millhaven Institution, a maximum security facility located just over 2.5 hours east of Toronto.
The 67-year-old’s injuries were serious enough for him to be hospitalized.
In February, McArthur was sentenced to 25 years in prison and will be eligible to apply for parole after that.
During the sentencing decision, Ontario Superior Court Justice John McMahon acknowledged the gruesome nature of McArthur’s crimes.
On January 29, the former self-employed landscaper pleaded guilty to eight counts of first-degree murder. He is accused of preying on men who disappeared from Toronto’s Gay Village between 2010 and 2017.
By pleading guilty, he voluntarily waived his right for his upcoming trial that was scheduled for January 2020.
His victims include Selim Esen, Skandaraj Navaratnam, Andrew Kinsman, Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, Dean Lisowick, Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnama, and Abdulbasir Faizi.
