Teens guilty in fatal beating of Winnipeg man protecting pregnant daughter

WINNIPEG - A jury has found two teenagers guilty of second-degree murder for beating to death a Winnipeg man who was trying to protect his pregnant daughter.

Joseph Lalonde, who was 48, was attacked with a baseball bat in August 2011.

He had stepped into a fight the teens were having with his daughter in the family's yard.

The teens, who were 15 at the time, are to be sentenced at a later date.

Prosecutors want them to be sentenced as adults, which would mean mandatory life sentences.

Court heard neither Lalonde nor his daughter had any connection with street gangs.
