'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' and 'Riverdale' Actor Ryan Grantham Sentenced to Life for Killing His Mother

In March 2020, Ryan Grantham pleaded guilty to second-degree murder after fatally shooting his mother

Actor Ryan Grantham was sentenced to life in prison for the shooting death of his mother. 

The 24-year-old was handed a life sentence in the British Columbia Supreme Court in Vancouver on Wednesday. 

He will not be eligible for parole for 14 years, Canada's CBC reports. 

Justice Kathleen Ker said gripping statements from the victim's loved ones, such as Grantham's sister, showed the "life-shattering" impact of the tragedy.  

She added that the actor's "saving grace" was that he was aware enough of what he did and he didn't go on a spree. 

He is getting psychiatric treatment while in jail and appears to be showing improvement, said Ker according to CBC 

The child actor's lawyer Chris Johnson said, according to CTV, that Grantham is not shocked at the sentencing.
