Stephanie Walroth Strangled Shaughn Lumley With His Underwear

RED DEER, Alta. - A woman has been sentenced to nine years in prison for strangling a man to death with his own underwear.

Court was told Stephanie Walroth, 44, and Shaughn Lumley, 58, were drinking together on Dec. 21, 2011.

The couple argued and Lumley struck Walroth in the head with a whisky bottle.

Walroth then hit Lumley with a sugar jar before using the elastic of his underwear to strangle him.

His body was found in his apartment four days later.
