WILLMAR, Minn (KFGO AM) -- Jury selection begins today in the murder trial of a teen accused of killing an elderly Willmar, Minnesota woman last July.

Prosecutors believe 19-year-old Brok Junkermeier intended to rob 79-year-old Lila Warwick and ended up stabbing and strangling her in her Willmar home.

Also charged in the case is Warwick's grandson 18-year-old Robert Warwick who police believe was the mastermind behind the robbery and killing.

He hasn't been sentenced yet.

A third suspect, 16-year-old Devon Jenkins of Willmar, pleaded guilty to one count of unintentional 2nd degree murder and was given a suspended sentence and placed in a juvenile facility until he's 18.

Jenkins admitted knowing about the plan and was with Junkermeier on the day of the murder but said he didn't think he was serious and admitted he should have tried to stop him.
