Lila WarwickWILLMAR, MN – Police have charged three teenagers with the murder of a 79-year-old woman killed during a robbery orchestrated by her own grandson.

Lila Warwick was discovered in the basement of her home after failing to pick up her 14-year-old granddaughter for vacation Bible school. Autopsy reports showed that Warwick died from multiple stab wounds and strangulation.

Police would eventually arrest three teens – Warwick’s grandson, 17-year-old Robert I. Warwick, 19-year-old Brok Junkermeier, and 16-year-old Devon J. Jenkins. According to prosecutors, Robert Warwick was under the impression that his grandmother had $40,000 in a safe, so he enlisted the help of both Junkermeier and Jenkins in helping him steal it.

According to prosecutors, Jenkins accompanied Junkermeier to the victim’s home early Monday morning. Jenkins waited in the car while Junkermeier made entry into the woman’s home using a garage code he obtained from Robert Warwick. Junkermeier waited in the garage for two hours, ambushing the poor woman as she walked into her garage. He then proceeded to “cut her with a sword-like knife, forcing her to write out a $1,500 check.”

Police say he then attempted to strangle her, but when she wouldn’t die he stabbed her repeatedly before eventually throwing her down the basement stairs. Junkermeier would later tell police that Warwick pleaded for her life right before he attempted to strangle her.

After the murder, Junkermeier and Jenkins got food at McDonald’s before heading home. Later that same day, Warwick and Junkermeier returned to the home and took the victim’s safe.

It didn’t take long for cops to zero in on the three teens because Junkermeier was bragging about what he did to friends, and Warwick’s family members were saying that Robert Warwick was a drug addict who hated his grandmother.

When police interviewed Junkermeier, he admitted to what he had done, and directed police to the bloody knife he used. Inside his home police would find bloody gym shoes, a safe and 30 $1,000 savings bonds in Warwick’s name.

Warwick is accused in a juvenile petition of two counts of second-degree murder, intentional and unintentional. Jenkins is also accused in a juvenile petition of the same counts, and of having “aided, advised, hired, counseled or conspired” with the others. Junkermeier is charged with intentional second-degree murder.

I now have figure out a way to get the name Junkermeier out of my life….forever.

  • These are the type of crimes ill never understand. Had to be drugs involved.

  • sugarpie

    *smh* *sighs* I think as degenerate little Warwick sits his stupid ass in prison, they should place his 30 $1,000 savings bonds in there within his view and burn 1 every year for 30 years so he can watch. Damn these little fucks.

  • Chinchillazilla

    Man… I’m gonna call my grandma later. I love her. 🙁

  • RoxBerry

    Brok looks like a hobbit, just had to mention that. His eyes .. he looks evil

  • newstarshipsmell

    Fuck you, Ray!

  • What shit heads!!!! Let’s see how they do in prison, hopefully they will be someone’s bitch really soon

  • Kittyskyfish

    I’m concerned I’ve got and up-and-coming Warwick in my family and let me tell you, this shit doesn’t come out of the blue.

    His parents can’t be positive role models to save their life. They threaten punishment but do nothing and then turn around and lavish the little bastard with gifts and privileges he doesn’t deserve. Nothing happens to him at home when he destroys school property. He picks fights and they blame the other kids. It’s always SOMEBODY ELSE’S FAULT. Now he’s 15 and to the point where he’s in a special night school because he’s not allowed to be around normal kids and he’s stuck wearing a court-mandated ankle bracelet (peeping/entering into other people’s homes). FFS his parents are on one hand angry at his behavior but *then* griping how the system is unfair to their kid. As if getting to know him would make them understand this is all some overblown misunderstanding. Like he’s bad but not that bad. I know my nephew and he’s a fucking little shithead. I’m glad I live far away because I don’t want to have to shoot him if he breaks into my house for drug money (yep, he does drugs).

    Fuck Warwick and *fuck* his parents. I’m sorry his grandmother had to die because of the way he turned out.

  • Jessie

    Another trio of retarded teenage boys. What the hell is wrong with them? We need to start sterilizing criminals while they are young so they cannot breed into the normal population.

  • Pyncky

    Little pieces of crap. I wish I still had my grandmother. If his was like mine she would have given him the money if he really needed it. I wish the rest of their lives are filled with nothing but despair and horror.

  • Andyman

    I wonder if they knew they were savings bonds made out in her name in the safe. I googled, “can you cash a savings bond in someone else’s name?” Here is what I found:

    No. The only person who can cash the bond is the person who’s name is on it. Even if you sign the bond no one else can cash it but you. The one exception would be if you were to pass away and your kids were to inherit the bonds. However, within that exception the bonds can not be signed. So for future reference if anyone is planning to leave an inheritance that includes bonds please make sure they are not signed.

  • Andyman

    Couldn’t agree more. Parents should avoid being their kid’s “friend” and be their damn parent. 15 is NOT the age at which to start this process. If you don’t teach your child how to behave while they are young, don’t be surprised at the animal with which you a dealing with once he/she is 15.

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    I was just wondering if she really had $40K in the safe or not.

  • Andyman

    Me too – the article said she had $30k in savings bonds so they were kind of close which is A 100% FAIL since they couldn’t do anything with them any way. Good riddance to this trio.

  • ultracreep

    My grandma would have whipped out the loaded 22 she kept and blasted the little bastards between the eyes. I sure miss her, rest her soul.

  • JohnQknowitall

    These kids are no doubt the worst kind of kids, but since the state released the names of the minors involved, Minnesota is the worst kind of state: it tries minors as adults without giving them the right to vote for the makers of the laws that will surely convict them.

  • mean birch

    A hearty fuck you to Ray

  • rizoo

    I agree, I was so bad at 15 (although I never killed or contemplated it) lol.. I was an evil one.. and my parents knew it! It allowed them to help me and not continue my horrible streak and become a better person.. if only all parents can stop worrying about :”friends” and concentrate on their own

  • glitterpuss

    Stupid kids with their stupid haircuts….and McDonald’s afterwards…..just die

  • Wow. It’s not enough to just steal anymore?

  • I hope you aren’t serious. That’s like saying illegals who don’t vote shouldn’t be tried for their crimes, either.

  • Cassy_Again

    Just like to add that if they were indeed “retarded” we would probably not be reading about them on here. Find another adjective. There’s notpoint in insulting an entire group of people who have a condition through no fault of their own by associating their condition with human garbage like these three. /rant

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    What a set of turds! Too bad there’s not a toilet big enough to flush the lot of them.

  • Heisenberg

    i already saw this episode on Little house on the Prairie

  • I like you as a commenter, Cassy, so I’m really not trying to poke at you here, I swear. That said, we can’t call handicapped people “retarded”, but we can’t call stupid people “retarded” either… Who can we describe as “retarded”? Because it’s a perfectly valid description, and I’m uncomfortable with eradicating legitimate words from common usage because of a sensitivity to it.

    The origin of the word translates to “be slow”. It has not come far from there since, generally being interpreted as “to be delayed”. These boys are clearly socially delayed and perhaps even intellectually. Those with legitimate handicaps are also delayed, but not in the same way, obviously. We have myriad words in the American lexicon that mean slightly different things depending on context. This is one of them.

    It’s a complicated issue. I don’t want to offend anyone with conditions beyond their control, but I don’t want words to get lost to sensitivity, either, you know?

  • No it’s not. We created a court system specifically for juveniles, and it only makes sense to try them there. If there was a court specifically set up for illegal immigrant offenses, I’d probably want them to be tried there. But illegal immigrants are generally adults who made the conscious decision to immigrate illegally, knowing it will make them ineligible for certain protections/privileges.

    So, apples and oranges, actually.

  • 18th40

    While I agree with the point you’re making, it is also true that certain words have been co-opted so far from their original intent that their usage is no longer considered accurate unless used in the strictest of settings, i’e. ‘retarded growth patterns’, ‘means for retarding mechanical slip in scissor hoists’.

    Again, I agree with you, but I believe Cassy is parroting what is preached by those who’ve determined that the use of that word in that context is no longer “politically correct”. N’cest pas ?

  • JohnQknowitall

    I am completely serious. This trend to charge children who commit crimes as adults is horrible. These children are not in the country illegally and they are children who are now held to the same standard as those who elect lawmakers. Should children vote? Probably not. Should children be tried at the same standard as adults? Never! How in the world did the connection comparing children to illegal immigrants come to mind?

  • 1) Robbing Gram-Gram, 2) Couldn’t manage to strangle a grandmother, 3) Confessed, and abetted his own prosecution. I’d argue diminished capacity and justifiable homicide: Obviously, Gram-Gram failed utterly to instill any values ,or elicit any talents from the lad. The burning moral question is: Did Grandson even bother to ASK for the money first?

  • Showoff.

  • FrikkenFrak

    A down-turned mouth. I’ve started to notice it’s a feature in a lot of criminals. Especially in Flor-ee-duh

  • FrikkenFrak

    Good post.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Well said, Athena. As a mom of a child who has a disability, I agree with you wholeheartedly. It is complex.

  • DeweyCheatam

    Adult crimes, adult consequences.

  • DeweyCheatam

    Similar stuff in my family. Hubby’s kids are nice enough people, but they totally suck as parents and role models. Consequently, grandkids are almost all thugs. Thankfully he sees it too and isn’t much more interested in having any of them around than I am. I’ve managed to keep them away from my house long enough now that I don’t think any of them could even find it, which is good, because hubby is a little too free with info like when we’re going away. I straight out tell him “don’t be telling them we’re going out of town, our shit will be gone when we get back.”

  • Great post. Very well articulated. I love the “is” vs. “has” point.

  • All crimes are adult crimes, so that doesn’t really make much sense. Are you suggesting we throw out the juvenile justice system?

  • And you know this isn’t the first time this sort of thing has happened. It sucks this woman had to lose her life to an ungrateful bastard grandchild, who cared more about what he “thought” was in that safe then he did his own grandmother.

  • Robert Grillot

    My grandma lives 650 miles away, and I talked to her 3 times today, for over a half hour each time, I miss her so much.

  • Robert Grillot

    I agree, as soon as I scrolled down and saw the faces, I knew he was the killer.

  • Jodi

    I lost my wonderful and amazing Grandmother today. My Mammaw was the greatest woman I have ever known and I was so very fortunate to have her with me for 44 years, to have my 2 girls create memories with her. I would give anything to have her with me again, if only for a few minutes, to hear her voice and feel her hugs.

    Fuck these little bastards

  • newstarshipsmell

    Come on, John, if they hadn’t released the names, we would’ve missed out on the context of what retards they look like.

  • newstarshipsmell

    I dunno, the ocean is kinda big.

  • Dafuq did I do?! 🙂

  • Fuck you too!!! 😀

  • Jessie

    I was using retarded in the scientific, defined version. Sorry if it offended. I actually would never refer to a person with Downs as “retarded”. I don’t see them as slow at all. THESE BOYS, however, are.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Don’t stab yourself in the head, but I immediately had the same thought after reading DC’s comment.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Okay, okay… Given that reasoning and this is DD, I acquiesce.

  • lolololololol! Why in God’s name would I stab myself in the head? Surely you aren’t implying that my opinion of you is that low. Because it’s absolutely not. I find you mystifying and occasionally frustrating, but generally delightful. 🙂

  • Simply put, these teens should know just as well as adults that killing is wrong. Sorry, but I don’t see killing your grandma as a mistake. At 16 you’re old enough to drive a car – which is far more responsibility than voting when it comes to the potential of hurting others. If you’re old enough to drive and work, you’re old enough to go to jail. One need not be educated in politics to know what’s right and wrong. These aren’t 10 year olds.

  • Buffettgirl

    My condolences on the loss of your Grandmother…

  • Buffettgirl

    Three more fucktards that have ruined a handful of lives because they were too greedy and too selfish to see that this shit would never work!

  • No, quite clearly, killing ones grandmother is not a mistake. But that has absolutely nothing to do with it. The juvenile system was not developed to handle mistakes. It was set up to handle juveniles, which these boys are.

    Juveniles charged as adults re-offend sooner and more often than their juvenile court peers. Those are the hard facts. When you’re dealing with kids, the adult system simply creates better criminals, because they’re not getting the rehabilitative resources available to them in the juvenile court. You need not be educated in politics (although that’s a really bad idea), but you should probably educate yourself in the research. This should get you started.

    I prefer the options that work best over those that feel best. Juvenile sentencing for juvenile offenders just works better.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Awwww… Thanks!

  • Pros and cons. And it’s all dependent on the state, too. Either way, I’m not comfortable with leniency on a 17-year-old killer. Like I said, they aren’t 10-year-olds. What about the 19-year-old? It’s quite possible he would just as easily be influenced by his adult counterparts behind bars. I’m sure plenty of studies argue with me, but plenty of studies also show that many 21-year-olds don’t have the mentality of an adult.

  • Well, yes, science has determined that the human brain doesn’t quit developing until right around 25. I would like to see policy based around science as much as possible. If I were creating policy, offenders 25 years or younger would get as much rehabilitative attention as we could afford to give. But, society has drawn the line rather arbitrarily at 18, so I see absolutely no reason not to stick with that, much less creep down even further into under-development.

    Legal policy and sentencing guidelines should be developed and implemented as objectively as possible based on the available evidence. Comfort level should not have any impact.

  • DeweyCheatam

    You know, if they nab a soda from the local 7-11, a little slap on the wrist is okay with me. But if you’re so fucking disturbed that you premeditate a home invasion robbery, not to mention of your own fucking grandmother, then I say fry ’em. I’m not interested in sending a msg that says “oh, you were just a teenager, ok then, we won’t hold you responsible for doing drugs, breaking into houses, and killing people.” Fuck that. IMO, that just fosters an attitude in their minds that hey, we got away with it once, why not give it another try.

  • Here’s the problem:

    1.) We can’t “fry ’em”. We can’t even sentence them to LWOP. So, there is a strong possibility that they will be walking the streets again.

    2.) No one’s talking about not holding them responsible. That’s exactly what the juvenile system does – they hold minors responsible in an age-appropriate manner, and it’s been working for about a century.

    3.) If sentencing them as juveniles really sent the message that their behavior is excusable, wouldn’t violent crime among young people be up? It’s not, though, and it can be argued that the numbers are due in part to rehabilitative efforts in juvenile facilities.

  • I’m not entirely disagreeing with you. I just look at murder much differently than, say, robbery and assault. I perceive “flying off the handle” and beating someone up as a more forgivable act when teens haven’t fully developed into understanding how to deal with their emotions. Murder, though? That’s a huge line crossed. Especially when one enter’s a residence with a weapon and is willing to return to the scene to finish what they started.

  • DeweyCheatam

    I beg to differ. If they are charged as adults, they can be sentenced as adults (although I do concede that in some jurisdictions they are still prohibited from execution). And we’ll never resolve anything here, certainly, or in the real world, as there are plenty of proponents on both sides of the aisle. But for me, with respect to crime and punishment, I say more is better.

  • patrickdh10

    To hurt a grandmother is a horrendous crime. Hang the Junkfuck with life behind bars and in front of Bubba for those other two wastes of DNA which is less than they deserve..

  • Some jurisdictions? Are you not American? Because, here, both execution and LWOP sentencing for juveniles has been ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

    If more was better, the U.S. would have the lowest crime rates in the industrialized world, considering we have the highest incarceration rate, the highest population of inmates and some of the most strict sentencing guidelines around. Contrary to popular believe and perhaps even logic, more is not necessarily better.

  • Premeditated crime is always worse than flying off the handle. But the reality of the situation is that, in all likelihood, these kids will be walking among us again. I’d rather they get out sooner but be more stable than later and more aggressive.

  • DeweyCheatam

    As I said, for me, more is better. I realize that’s not how everyone feels. In fact, for me, I’d just prefer that they all be killed on the spot by their intended victims or law enforcement. Done. No more debate. Failing that, I’d settle for conditions similar to the old movie Midnight Cowboy. Open air cells, with no a/c or heat (if you know someone who will provide you with a blanket, then you get a blanket) and cockroaches for food if you can catch it. Or, things like third world countries (Nicarauga, I think is one) where the penalty for first offense DUI is death by firing squad. Abso – fucking – lutely awesome, IMO. We’re too soft on criminals all the way around as far as I’m concerned, and that’s one of the reasons the country is in such a mess (among many, many others, I know).

  • You do have a point.

  • Then why is it, you think, that those countries even softer on criminals than we are, have lower crime rates? You know, like, all of western civilization?

  • DeweyCheatam

    Why is it you keep trying to have a rational, intelligent conversation, when I just want to jump up and down on my bandwagon? lol There are lots of reasons, to answer your question, but with a broad stroke I will just say that there are many factors that contribute to how a society functions, and therefore their crime rates. I don’t think we can look at how to combat crime just in strict terms of punishment / age / recidivism rates, etc.; rather, we have to consider education, socio – economic status, and family history, to name a few. I imagine those things may have something to do with the difference in crime rates between us and other countries (and I’m assuming your statement to be true). Having said all that *steps back up onto soapbox* let me just say, I don’t care what someone’s childhood was like, or if they were whacked on drugs, or if they’re poor …. while it may help me to understand why they did a crime, and maybe even have a little personal sympathy, it makes no difference to me whatsoever in terms of inflicting punishment. I would love to see our society do all sorts of things different / better, so that we don’t continue to grow these crops of ever – worsening and younger criminals, but failing that, when a crime is committed, I say off with their heads!

  • Point taken, lol.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Given your logic then why are govermental voting and drinking not legal for 16 year olds? Why does society punish persons over 18 (generally) for having sex with 16 year olds?

  • Neon_Gonorrhea

    The age of entitlement. This is what happens when you coddle children, give them whatever they want and convince them that they are special and that even if they win or lose, they get the prize. When life finally forces itself upon them, and they are told “no” a few times, the lose their fucking minds and knife grandma for cash.

  • Neon_Gonorrhea

    Word.

  • IMO, there’s a big difference between having the experience and education for “adult” things, but knowing right and wrong? You don’t need a degree to know that killing is wrong.

  • Abroad

    In the UK, “handicapped” is not a word one can use any longer. I see it used on US sites and it always gives me pause. The accepted term in the UK is now “[persons] living with disabilities”, which is a mouthful, but which shows the distinction you suggest between someone BEING something and someone HAVING something.

    P.S. Working for a company that supplies equipment for people living with disabilities for the toilet and bathroom, we find the expression “special needs” really exasperating: It is such a catch-all phrase that you never know if a school specialising in “special needs” is dealing in kids that have developmental disabilities (not usually interesting to us), kids that have behavioural problems (“naugthy” kids, not interesting at all), or kids “living with physical limitations” (an expression we might use in our marketing literature, and our target group!). Google “special needs school” here and unless you actually see a wheel-chair on the website, you have no clue!

  • Abroad

    I disagree fundamentally with your conclusions, but that argument was very well presented. Thank you for bothering to explain your position instead of attacking ad hominem!

  • JGo555

    I KNEW he was a drug addict.

    He looks like her with a Justin Bieber haircut. Good luck being in jail with THAT haircut AND with those pics plastered on the news.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Ahhhh A have your cake and eat it too opinion… I think to try a minor as an adult is just about a wrong as any cluster fuck ever dreamed by a group of good intentioned citizens and the slime they elected have move this knee jerk legislation into law. The aforementioned people are the same ilk who believe life was better pre-1950s when there were no blacks, Latins, Jews, gays or gypsies.

  • Oh, please don’t insert that type of horrible mindset into my comment. I am neither racist nor homophobic.

  • These three fucking One Direction/ Justin Bieber wannabes? Just shoot them all in the fucking head. It’s obvious they won’t contribute to society.

  • FrikkenFrak

    I personally am not offended. We all learn (hopefully), every day we live.

    I find that sticking to terms like JACK ASS and A HOLE offend no one! lol
    : )

  • JohnQknowitall

    Okay.

  • Christopher Howard

    To be fair, I take his comment as specifically dealing with the seriousness of this crime (murder) as opposed to boyish pranks like stealing apples from the neighbor’s tree (yes, I will be updating my references someday). Juveniles are frequently charged as adults when the seriousness of the crime warrants it. I certainly understand why people may have problems with charging kids as adults (I have my own qualms there) but some teens really are ice cold killers and need to be taken out of circulation for as long as possible.

  • wolfcat

    They don’t. The mind does not mature until 25. That being said, I recently hit 25 and both my husband and I noticed some serious changes to my personality and the way I think and behave in just the past year. It’s a noticeably massive change! I can guarantee you that a 16 year old is not thinking like a 25 yr old no matter how mature they are. Personally, I think we should go back to the old system of no one being considered an adult until 25. It makes no sense to do so. That being said, There should be different forms of punishment gradually going up until the age of 25. The system is not at all accurately punishing anyone. I become very livid every time I hear of a child being tried as an adult. This country has a much higher reoffense rate than countries like Norway that have maximum 15 or so yr sentences and focus on rehabilitation instead of punishment. Something we gave up on in the 70’s.

  • wolfcat

    Mentally immature people reason away bad things in all sorts of irrational ways. Even adults have to admit that good and bad, right and wrong are not always black and white. Kids have a much harder time deciding when they are right and when they are wrong. I had about 15 yrs of homicidal and suicidal tendencies there along with multiple personality disorder. It all went away in the last few years. Bit by bit. I can guarantee you that a messed up young mind can try to reason away all sorts of things. I think my high intelligence and capacity for caring are the only reasons why I’m not some psycho serial killer hyped up on drugs and getting into every crime there is. I definitely had the opportunities and the criminal gremlin on the loose in my head.

    That being said, many criminals have mental problems. A lot are lacking impulse control. If you ask them why they did what they did, the vast majority either will not know themselves or they got an urge and allowed it to tell them what to do. Many are lacking empathy. There are a lot of people rigged that way who don’t ever go to jail. Some just have a very high drive for self preservation. I love to study people and their minds and methods of thinking and reasoning in detail. lol

    Teen Gives Disturbing Confession After Pleading Guilty To Murder

    – The Willmar teenager who killed his friend’s grandma explained exactly how he did in a disturbing confession.

    Brok Junkermeier, 19, admitted to choking and then stabbing Lila Warwick at her home last summer.

    He’d hatched a plan with her grandson to steal her money. After he
    forced her to write a check to him, he strangled her for 20 minutes.

    When that didn’t work, he got a dagger.

    “Why were you stabbing her?” investigators asked in the video
    confession. Junkermeier responds without emotion, saying: “I didn’t
    think she was dead.”
