Two men who committed murder in the Castor-area back in December 2013, have been sentenced life in prison, 25 years, without parole.
Jason Klaus, 41, and Joshua Frank, 32, were found guilty of first degree murder in a court-room in Red Deer on January 10th.
Wednesday, Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench Justice, Eric Macklin, had the choice of giving the murderers a 25, 50, or 75 year concurrent sentence, before the possibility of parole.
In December of 2013, Jason Klaus and Joshua Frank killed Klaus' parents and sister before lighting the family house on fire.
Klaus was charged with three counts of first-degree murder in relation to killing his family and one arson charge. Frank similarly was also charged with three counts of first-degree murder.
The remains of Klaus' father, Gordon, and sister, Monica, were found in the burned down house in Castor in December 2013. Sandra Klaus' remains are believed to have been in the fire as well but have never been found.
