As his sex-killer son settles into his new prison cell thanks to the pending closing of his old home, Paul Bernardo's father says in his opinion Karla Homolka should still be locked up behind bars, too.

In an exclusive interview with QMI Agency on the eve of Kingston Penitentiary shutting its doors after 179 years, Ken Bernardo said its not easy as a parent of such a notorious killer and understands "it's worse" for the families of those he was convicted of murdering.

"It's harder on them and its terrible," he said from his Scarborough, Ont., home. "They have to live with it every day."

Ken Bernardo, who said his son receives daily threats on his life, says "naturally" he feels the pain of the suffering the families of Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy go through.

It's a constant source of "distress," he said.

However, while his son is "doing his time like a man," it does irk him that his former wife, Karla Homolka, is free, living on the island of Guadalupe with a new husband and children, he said.

"As far as I am concerned Karla has got away with it and is free, but that is a whole other story," he said.
