Junkermeier Murder Trial 02 Apr 14

In a conversational tone, murder suspect Brok Junkermeier laid out details of how he strangled and stabbed Lila Warwick to death after he forced her to write him a check for $1,500.

“I killed Lila Warwick. Totally,” said the 19-year-old in the videotaped interview with detectives that was played for jurors Tuesday at the Kandiyohi County Courthouse inWillmar.

The West Central Tribune reports that the interview was recorded on July 31, 2013 –– two days after the 79-year-old Warwick was found dead in her home on the east edge of Willmar.

Junkermeier and Warwick’s 18-year-old grandson Robert “Robbie” Warwick, of Willmar, are each charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the case — one count of premeditated murder and one count of murder while committing the felony of burglary.

16-year-old Devon Jenkins of Willmar has already been sentenced as a juvenile for aiding and abetting second-degree murder. He was in the car when Junkermeier went to Lila Warwick’s home.
