A gruesome murder back in 2011, led to an Edmonton man being sentenced to life in prison on Oct. 27, 2016, with no change of parole for 16 years.
Mark Lindsay was found guilty of second-degree murder in February.
This after the court heard he used a pencil to stab his ex-girlfriend in both eyes, before strangling her with his shoelaces and running her over with a vehicle — twice.
Dana Turner was 31-years-old at the time, and her mother, Wendy Yurko, was not impressed with the prison sentence handed down to Lindsay.
“I just think what a sad, sad country we live in where there is no real punishment for committing murder. I have the dubious distinction of being the mother of a murdered daughter and I am allowed now to pay taxes for the rest of my life to support something that looks human, but is not human.”
Yurko left no doubt about what she feels should have been done with Lindsay.
“The Justice in this case would be for me to be allowed to murder Mark exactly the way . . . or for him to die exactly the way he murdered my daughter. Whether it’s me, whether it’s our judicial system; take him and kill him. Stop bleeding society’s money to keep people like this alive.”
Her daughter’s body was found in a ditch near Innisfail, two months after she was reported missing. (Global News/td)
