Jason Klaus and Joshua Frank were found guilty of first-degree murder for shooting Klaus’ parents and sister on a central Alberta farm.
RED DEER, ALTA.—Two men have been found guilty of first-degree murder for shooting one of the men’s parents and sister on a central Alberta farm.
Jason Klaus and Joshua Frank sat silently with no expression as the verdicts were read.
Justice Eric Macklin told court in Red Deer, Alta., that both men repeatedly lied about what happened to Klaus’s family and their stories were full of inconsistencies.
Gordon Klaus and his daughter, Monica, were found in their burned-out farmhouse near Castor, Alta., in December 2013.
Sandra Klaus was never found, although police believe her body was also in the house.
