Kelly Marie Ellard is about to become a mother
Despite serving a life sentence in prison for killing 14-year-old Reena Virk, Ellard is now about eight months pregnant, the Vancouver Sun has learned.
The father is a man with gang links who was out on day parole when he was allowed the intimate visits with Ellard in the spring.
Darwin Dorozan, 41, was granted full parole in August, but it has since been revoked after an alleged breach.
The Parole Board of Canada said in its Aug. 3 ruling releasing Dorozan that “there are concerns about your relationship with your girlfriend, who is pregnant.”
Ellard, 33, is not identified as the girlfriend in the documents, but Postmedia News has confirmed with several sources that she is Dorozan’s pregnant girlfriend.
Dorozan was given credit by the two-person panel for being “open and accountable about the relationship,” the parole ruling says.
But the ruling also said Dorozan “will likely face significant stress relating to the birth of your child.”
Dorozan is serving a seven-year, two-month sentence after pleading guilty in 2012 to 11 counts of break and enter and break and enter with intent. Dorozan broke into several homes in 2010 and 2011 to steal things to finance a heroin addiction, the board noted.
“Some of the residences were occupied and during a confrontation with a male victim, you sprayed him in the face about five times with bear spray.”
Ellard had three trials before she was convicted in 2005. She was first found guilty in 2000, but the B.C. Court of Appeal ordered a new trial. The second time around, the jury couldn’t reach a verdict and a mistrial was declared. She was convicted of second-degree murder after her third trial.
Though she was 15 when she killed Virk, Ellard was raised to adult court and was sentenced to life with no hope of parole for seven years.
Last May, the Parole Board of Canada denied Ellard day parole, saying that while she was finally admitting some responsibility for Virk’s death, there was “ongoing minimization” of her crime.
