Man pleads guilty in sex worker’s 2010 death

An Okanagan man has pleaded guilty in the 2010 death of a sex trade worker.

The body of Teri-Lyn Williams, 41, was found in some bushes in Surrey on June 9, 2010.

Dustin Lalonde, 23, was charged with second-degree murder months later.

He has now pleaded guilty, before the start of his trial, in New Westminster Supreme Court.

RCMP Cpl. Adam Macintosh with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says officers are pleased to see the development, which will give some closure to those who loved Williams.

He would not go into details of how the woman was killed: “Although Mr. Lalonde did plead guilty to second-degree murder, obviously he has to be sentenced, and we want to allow the court to complete that process.”

Sentencing is set for May 31.
