A former child actor who has appeared in dozens of TV shows and movies has pleaded guilty to murdering his mother in her home in B.C.

Ryan Grantham, 23, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in B.C. Supreme Court on Wednesday in the death of his 64-year-old mother Barbara Waite, according to CBC.

According to IMDb, Grantham most recently appeared in the TV show Riverdale but has a long list of credits to his name, including Becoming Redwood, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Supernatural and iZombie.

The incident took place on April 1, 2020, when B.C. RCMP said they were called to a residence in Squamish after a family member found the body of a woman, later identified as Waite.

Detectives investigating the incident arrested Grantham shortly after the discovery, police said at the time.

Now, almost two years on, Grantham has admitted to murdering his mother and is due back in court for sentencing on June 13.

Second-degree murder carries an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for at least 10 years, according to the Government of Canada's Justice Laws website.
