Murdered his own mother

Two years after a 51-year-old woman was found dead in her Yarrow home, her son has been convicted and sentenced for the death.

Clayton Jacob Warkentin, now 21 years old, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on Jan. 30 and was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years last Thursday.

Police found Lois Unger dead in her home, about 12 kilometres southwest of Chilliwack, in the early hours of Feb. 24, 2016. Nine days later, Warkentin was arrested and charged in the killing.

“This was a tragic incident that shocked the community with lasting effect on Ms. Unger’s family and friends,” IHIT spokesperson Cpl. Frank Jang said in a statement.
