Gangster Shawn Anthony Vassel was to learn Monday about his parole eligibilty following his conviction for gunning down a rival dealer during a drug ripoff.

12:00 |

But prosecutor Brian McGuire’s sickness caused sentencing proceedings to be postponed.

Vassel, 27, known as “Buck” or “Buckshot,” was returned to custody until May 13, following his appearance at the Hurtonario St. courthouse.

Following a complicated eight-week trial — plus six days of deliberating — a jury found him guilty last month of the 2007 second-degree murder of Mississauga dealer Husam Dagheim.

Justice Michael Tulloch sentenced Vassel to a mandatory life term. He still has to determine Vassel’s parole eligibilty — 10 years to 25 years.

Dagheim, 27, was hit in the heart when the gunman fired a .40-calibre weapon, jurors were told. Court heard at the time of the shooting, the victim was beside his wife in a van near a movie theatre parking lot across from Square One Shopping Centre at Hurontario St. and Burnhamthorpe Rd.

Vassel shot Dagheim during a plan to steal the victim’s marijuana.
