Two year house arrest in Warwick murder

Jesse Storr

A 38 year-old Kettle and Stony Point First Nations woman will spend two years under house arrest after a murder in the Village of Warwick more than four years ago.

Tina George, 38, plead guilty to manslaughter last October in Superior Court in Sarnia in the death of Jesse Storr. 

Storr, 29, was found injured in his Egremont Road home the afternoon of April 29, 2018 after hours of partying and a chaotic, drug and alcohol-fueled confrontation.

Storr and Tina George knew each other. Storr had three children with one of George’s sisters. They divorced and Storr began dating another sister. She was at the party with Tina George and Storr that night.

The night before the violent incident, Storr, Tina George, her sister and a few friends were drinking at bars and house parties in Sarnia and Forest, where they had all been getting along. The partying end by the early morning where the George sisters and Storr were alone in his apartment in Warwick and went to sleep. 

George woke up to a fight between Storr and her sister. There was a series of struggles before George took a knife from the kitchen and stabbed the man.

The crown had suggested a sentence of two years less a day – to avoid federal prison – saying her actions were “near self-defence.”

George’s lawyer suggested house arrest or a suspended sentence.
