Samantha Le and Xuan Van Vy Ba-Cao were murdered by six men in 2016 after walking into a B.C. residence and witnessing an ongoing kidnapping which involved torture.

Both 29-year-old Le and 24-year-old Ba-Cao were parents and have left behind one child each. Their families are now appalled by the judge’s decision to give each of the criminals sentences lasting under fifteen years.
