Sentencing for man accused in Whistler swarming killing

A young man is set to find out today whether he’s been found guilty of second-degree murder in the swarming death of 19-year-old Luka Gordic two years ago.

Arvin Golic — who was 18-years-old at the time — is accused of planning the attack in Whistler Village and of being there when it happened. His ex-girlfriend and her friend have both said Golic threatened to kill Gordic.

The teens were in Whistler with groups of friends, and the tension is believed to have started with Gordic telling Golic to stop being abusive to his ex-girlfriend.

Gordic was swarmed by up to 15 people and stabbed on May 17th, 2015 after becoming separated from a group of friends. One of the people who surrounded him delivered a fatal stab to his heart.

The verdict is expected to come down after 12:30 p.m. in BC Supreme Court in Downtown Vancouver
