WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg woman convicted of stabbing her neighbour 23 times sobbed in court as she asked a judge for mercy.
Earlier this year, a jury found Brenda Schuff guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Judy Kenny.
Kenny, a 54-year-old former receptionist at CTV Winnipeg, was found dead in her kitchen in 2017.
Court heard that in the hours before Kenny died, Schuff helped her look for a missing dog and they went back to Kenny’s home for a drink.
Kenny was then beaten, stomped and stabbed.
Schuff, who is 46, automatically received a life sentence and Justice Richard Saull is to decide Friday on how long she must serve before she is eligible for parole.
Schuff also told the judge Monday that she is “sickened and repulsed” by her crime. And she apologized to Kenny’s family.
