Warm Springs Residents Sentenced


Two Warm Springs residents have been sentenced in a murder the federal judge describes as "extraordinarily brutal."  Prosecutors say the murder of Lucinda Stwyer of Warm Springs involved stabbing and strangulation. Attorney Scott Kerin says both defendants: Jolena Waner and Antonio Brito were active meth users before and during the crime: “Its a little unclear why the homicide happened. Part of that is because Jolena Warner had made different statement to different people about why it happened. At one point she told someone that it was a revenge killing. That she blamed Lucinda Stwyer for a murder of her cousin. And this was her payback for that. She made other statements to other individuals that this was a robbery attempt, that resulted in the death of the victim.” Jolena Warner, 30, who was considered the lead in the murder, was sentenced to 30 years in prison; and Antonio Brito, 25, received 18 years. The murder happened in September of 2008.
