The Willmar teenager who pleaded guilty to killing his friend’s grandmother has been sentenced to life in prison without parole. Brok Junkermeier, 19, admitted to choking and then stabbing Lila Warwick at her home on July 29, 2013. He had hatched a plan with her grandson to steal her money. He described his actions in court last week. He said after he forced her to write a check to him, he strangled her for 20 minutes. After that, he got a dagger and started stabbing her because, as he confessed, “I didn’t think she was dead.”
The Willmar teenager who killed his friend’s grandma explained exactly how he did in a disturbing confession.
A teenager accused of murdering a Minnesota grandmother said her own grandson was the mastermind behind the plot. Police found 79-year-old Lila Warwick dead in her home in Willmar on Monday night. Investigators say she’d been strangled and stabbed.
Pastor Greg Enterline has been pastor at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Willmar for three years, and had gotten to know Lila Warwick pretty well.
