Life sentence for Surrey woman’s 2010 murder

Dustin Lee Lalonde, who killed Teri-Lyn Williams, cannot apply for parole for 10 years.

Teri-Lyn Williams was murdered in Surrey by Dustin Lalonde in 2010.

The man who killed Surrey’s Teri-Lyn Williams three years ago and dumped her body in North Surrey has been handed a life sentence with no chance of parole for 10 years.

Dustin Lee Lalonde pleaded guilty in late March to second-degree murder in Williams’ death. The conviction carries an automatic life sentence, with a judge deciding how long he must wait until he may apply for parole.

Lalonde was sentenced Thursday (July 11) in New Westminster Supreme Court.

Williams, who was from Calgary and sometimes went by the name Toni, was 41 years old. Police said she was a known sex-trade worker.

At the time of her death, friends described her as an amateur bodybuilder who ran her own cleaning company before she drifted into debt, drug use and prostitution.

Her body was found in a roadside area on June 9, 2010.

Lalonde, 32, was charged more than a year after the murder, in September 2011. He was already serving a jail sentence for robbery and aggravated assault convictions related to an August 2010 incident in Kelowna.

His latest sentence also orders him to provide a DNA sample for the RCMP databank and bans him from owning firearms for life.
