WILLMAR, Minn. (KNSI) Nineteen year-old Brok Junkermeier was given a state-mandated life prison sentence today for the murder of 79 year-old Lila Warwick at her Willmar area home last July.

Junkermeier was sentenced in Kandiyohi County District Court Wednesday.

Last week, during his trial, Junkermeier abruptly changed his plea to guilty.

Junkermeier and Warwick's grandson--18 year-old Robert Warwick--were both indicted on first-degree murder charges.

Robert Warwick is being held on $2 million bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 23rd.

Another teenager charged in the case--16 year-old Devon Jenkins of Willmar--pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting second-degree murder.
