Man pleads guilty to murder in 2017 Stanley Park stabbing

Guilty plea in park murder

A Vancouver man has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of another man who was found on the Stanley Park seawall in February 2017.

Dan McLaughlin with the BC Prosecution Service says Tyler Lagimodiere pleaded guilty in court on Thursday to a lesser charge.

He had been accused of first-degree murder of 61-year-old Lubomir Kunik, who was stabbed to death.

Kunik was found by a man out walking his dog on the beach late on the evening of Feb. 1, 2017.

Police said at the time that the attack appeared random.

McLaughlin says Lagimodiere will be sentenced Feb. 27, 2020.
