NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. - A 42-year-old Coquitlam, B.C., woman has been convicted for stabbing her former boyfriend to death in his trailer park home.

Darlene Daigle was found guilty of killing 39-year-old Peter Markus.

She was convicted of second-degree murder by a B.C. Supreme Court jury in New Westminster on Thursday.

Cpl. Dominic Duchesneau (doo-sha-no) says the pair had ended a relationship six months before the killing.

RCMP were called to his trailer park home in Coquitlam on January 2010.

Daigle is still awaiting sentencing.
