Junkermeier gets life for Warwick murder, says he’s found God in jail

Email

WILLMAR, Minn. — As expected, Brok Junkermeier was sentenced to life in prison this morning for killing Lila Warwick last summer at her rural Willmar home.

The 19-year-old Willmar man read his own statement before Judge Donald Spilseth handed down the state-mandated guideline sentence for first-degree premeditated murder. Junkermeier said he’d found God in jail, and realized that Warwick’s last words, that she could help him, that God could help him, were true.
