Matthew Foerster has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Taylor Van Diest.
Foerster showed no emotion when the seven-man, five woman jury read their verdict in B.C. Supreme Court in Kelowna on Saturday morning.
The Van Diest family and friends wept silently and comforted each other upon hearing the verdict they were looking for.
Foerster was sentenced to life in prison with no eligibility of parole for at least 25 years.
