VICTORIA, BC, Fri Feb 18, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Robert Latimer, who was convicted of second-degree murder for killing his disabled daughter Tracy, says he has no regrets about the murder and in retrospect would do it again.

In an interview with Radio-Canada, the CBC’s French language service, Latimer said, “I know I was right,” to kill 12-year-old Tracy, who suffered from cerebral palsy.

According to the CBC, this interview is the first public statement Latimer has made since he was granted full parole on Dec. 8, 2010.

Latimer has never expressed remorse for killing his 12-year-old daughter, and has maintained that he had acted “out of love” and that he had no choice but to kill her.

He told the CBC’s Anne-Marie Dussault that the decision to kill her was hard, “but it was not sad.”

“She’d had enough. That was it. We were done,” Latimer told Dussault.

When Tracy’s death was discovered, Latimer at first lied to police, saying that she had died in her sleep. He later confessed to police, who had done an autopsy, that he had killed his daughter by placing her in the cab of his truck and connecting a hose from the cab to the truck’s exhaust pipe. He also confessed to having considered other methods of killing Tracy, including Valium overdose and “shooting her in the head.”
