Life sentences handed to pair who fatally beat man walking home with groceries

CALGARY — A 30-year-old woman and 25-year-old man have been given life sentences for beating a Calgary man so badly he died in hospital four months later.

Chantelle Campbell and Jarod Henry were convicted of the second-degree murder of John Herrera-Garcia in 2012.

The 49-year-old from Colombia, who was working in Calgary, had been walking home with groceries when he was approached by three people including Campbell and Henry.

During the trial, court was told Herrera-Garcia was kicked repeatedly in the head.

A third person was acquitted of all charges in the beating death.

Campbell will have no chance of parole for 14 years while Henry cannot apply until 12 years into his sentence.

Prior to sentencing, Campbell showed remorse for her actions while addressing the court.

“Don’t look at me like I’m a murderer," she said. "I made a terrible mistake.”
