A heavy burden

For Lynn Kalmring's loved ones, the heartache that followed her death didn't end when her killer was arrested or when he was eventually found guilty.

It didn't end when a judge sentenced 56-year-old Keith Wiens — a retired RCMP officer — to life in prison for second-degree murder, rejecting his claim that he'd killed his common-law spouse in self-defence. Nor did it end when his appeal was rejected or when the wrongful death case brought by the family in civil court was settled.

For people like Kalmring's sister, Donna Irwin, the suffering that started with a single gunshot in August 2011 in Penticton, B.C., continues.
