Guilty Plea ends Trial PDF Print
Thursday, 20 September 2007 15:24

Just as jury selection was about to continue today, 23-year-old Kyle Triplett pleaded guilty

today to killing 19-year-old Appalachian State University student Stephen Harrington. Harrington’s body was found duct taped and smoldering in the trunk of his car on Sleepy Hollow Lane in November of 2005. Triplett accepted a plea agreement where he pleads guilty to all the charges, including 2nd degree murder, 1st degree kidnapping and conspiracy to sell cocaine. In doing so, Triplett will serve a minimum sentence of 40 years in prison without parole. Two other suspects in the case have yet to go to trial. 22-year-old Matthew Brandon Dalrymple and 26-year-old Neil Matthew Sargeant will also be tried in Harrington’s death. Dalrymple agreed to testify against the other two suspects in order to avoid the death penalty, a fate Sargeant could still face.

 

Triplett's trial started Monday, and inside sources suggested it would be a lengthy one. A source within the district attorney's office said they had hoped for this outcome, but were surprised, nonetheless.
