I don't think that the mint will actually kill the strawberry plants unless they become really thick and perhaps shade out the sun completely. The mint's runners can go for a very long way, however. I simply keep pulling mine up when it gets tall or thick. At least it smells good while you're working!

I also am new to gardening & have inherited the invasive mint plant. I've done almost everything that was suggested and finally went to a local nursery for assistance. They suggested a vinegar & salt mixture, covered by newspaper & a heavy layer of mulch. It's worth a try!
