The daughter of a London homicide victim lashed out at her father's killer Monday after a judge rejected the Crown's request to sentence the teenager as an adult.

The daughter of a London homicide victim lashed out at her father’s killer Monday after a judge rejected the Crown’s request to sentence the teenager as an adult.

The 18-year-old, who can’t be identified because he was 15 when he gunned down Steve Sinclair, was sentenced to seven years – four in custody, three under community supervision — for second-degree murder.

The sentence sparked outrage from Sinclair’s daughter Sienna, who threw a ball of paper at the teen and swore at him inside the ninth-floor courtroom.

“I never get to see dad again. He gets seven years,” she sobbed as relatives restrained her.
