A gangster has been sentenced to life in prison and will serve a minimum of 15 years before he is eligible for parole for his part in the 2007 Surrey Six slayings.

Dennis Karbovanec, 27, was sentenced Thursday by a B.C. Supreme Court judge after pleading guilty to the second-degree murder of Chris Mohan, 22, Ryan Bartolomeo, 19, and Michael Lal, 26, at the Balmoral Tower on Oct. 19, 2007.

He also pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to kill.

A ban was placed on publishing details of the sentencing to ensure that three other men, also charged in the slayings, receive a fair trial.

Jamie Bacon, 23, Matt Johnston, 24, and Cody Haevischer, 24, are scheduled to appear in court on May 15.
