A Canadian court sentenced former child actor Ryan Grantham to life in prison this week after he was convicted of murdering his mother.

Grantham, best known for his acting in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise and the TV series Riverdale, killed his mother, 64-year-old Barbara Waite, in March 2020 when he was 21 years old, according to a report.

The now-24-year-old pleaded guilty and will not be eligible for parole for at least 14 years, according to the British Columbia Supreme Court decision.

The case is “tragic and heartbreaking,” Justice Kathleen Ker said.

While his mother was playing piano, Grantham reportedly shot her in the back of the head with a rifle.

He then proceeded to film a video where he showed his mother’s corpse and confessed to his crime, the report noted.

The day after his crime, Grantham lit candles, laid out rosaries on the piano, and prayed before loading up his car with at least one gun, ammunition, and Molotov cocktails, prosecutors said.
