A jealous man was sentenced to life in prison for killing his girlfriend after he found her studying with another man.

24-year-old Gurjinder “Gary” Dhaliwal of Canada, has been dating his teenage girlfriend for four years.

However, she allegedly dumped him a month before her death after learning that he was cheating on her. 19-year-old Maple Batalia did not date another man as she was focusing on her studies.

Batalia was a student at the Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, where she was a medical student. She was also a part-time actress and model.

Dhaliwal, who was obsessed with Batalia, sent her hundreds of text messages and he called her many times. One day, Dhaliwal went to the Surrey campus to confront the teenager.

He found her in the library study hall, where she was studying with a male friend. Dhaliwal became jealous and waited for her to leave. He then followed her outside, and shot and stabbed her 11 times in the head.

Dhaliwal pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. He was sentenced to life in prison, and he will have to spend at least 21 years behind bars before he becomes eligible for parole.

Batalia moved from India to the country with her family when she was a baby. Her family is devastated over the loss.
