I just got back from Bellingham where I attended the sentencing of Frank Brunner.
As some of you may or may not remember Frank Brunner was the man that stabbed Ken (Auger) to death in Lynden Wash. last March 21.
Brunner plead guilty to 1 count of murder 2, 2 counts of aggravated assault, 1 count of burglary and I believe 1 count of committing an offence with a firearm. He was sentenced to the maximum of 26 years of which he will serve 85% of that in state prison.
I wish I could remember more but I have been up all night working and then run down to bellingham this morning so I am a little tired and it is tough to think right now.
Of this all I can say is I am glad it is all over for now. Now kens family and I can try to pick up the pieces and get on with our lives. It will no doubt be difficult without ken but atleast there can be some closure to this whole mess!
Jack Foster and staff of the lynden police department as well as the prosecuter,Mac Setter and staff of the Bellingham court house, have been very helpful and understanding throughout all this and I thank them!
