Foerster resentenced to life in prison

The man convicted of murdering Armstrong teenager Taylor Van Diest has been sentenced to life in prison, again.

32-year-old Matthew Foerster pleaded guilty to second degree murder earlier this year, and will not be eligible to apply for parole until 2029.

He was originally convicted of first degree murder in 2014, but successfully appealed it, on the grounds there were errors made by the judge.

Back in 2011, Foerster had never met, followed 18-year-old Van Diest along a set of railway tracks on Halloween night, where he beat her with a flashlight, strangled her, and left her for dead.

Van Diest died from her injuries later in hospital.

Foerster was arrested in early 2012, and was given his first life sentence two years later.
