WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg woman convicted of second-degree murder in the death of her neighbour has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 15 years.

Brenda Schuff, who is 46, was found guilty in June of killing 54-year old Judy Kenny.

The offence carries a mandatory life sentence and, on Friday, a judge ruled Schuff must serve 15 years before she can apply for release.

Kenny was found dead in the kitchen of her home on April 10, 2017.

During the trial, court heard she had been beaten, stomped and stabbed 23 times.

The two women didn’t know each other, and met hours before Kenny’s death when Schuff helped her look for a missing dog.

Court heard they went back to Kenny’s house for a drink and to talk.
