VANCOUVER, Canada — Robert Latimer, the Saskatchewan farmer who killed his severely disabled daughter, won't be permitted to enter a caregiver relationship with anyone who has a disability when he gains full parole on Dec. 6.
The National Parole Board has released the details of two special conditions its members set in granting the 57-year-old's release last week.
Latimer must not have responsibility for, or make decisions for, any individuals who have a significant disability, and he must continue to participate in one-to-one psychological counselling.
The board's decision says the man, who's been living at a Victoria halfway house and apartment for the past two years while on day parole, would be at an elevated risk to re-offend if put into a position of authority with a disabled person.
Latimer was convicted in 1994 of the second-degree murder of his daughter, Tracy, who died of carbon monoxide poisoning after he put her in a truck and threaded a hose inside.
He later admitted to the deed, maintaining he wanted to end her suffering from the severe and chronic pain of cerebral palsy.
