Killer Gets Two Life Sentences In Xbox-Motivated Murder

Killer Gets Two Life Sentences In Xbox-Motivated Murder

A Colorado Springs teen who killed a developmentally disabled man – investigators said he wanted the guy’s Xbox – will spend the rest of his life in prison for it.

Kyle Sebastian Stott, 19, killed Jason Holley, 22, in January 2009, hiding his body in a ravine near a hiking trail west of Colorado Springs. At his sentencing on Thursday, a judge handed him two life terms without the possibility of parole.

“”He trusted you. He would have given you anything, and he did,” Judge Deborah Grohs said of Holley. “You could have taken the Xbox and he never would have told anybody. … He was trying to be normal, and be a buddy or one of the guys.”

Grohs’ levied a severe sentence because of Holley’s status as an “at-risk adult”. The judge said Stott participated in “murder for sport” whose only purpose was “bragging rights”.

Another man also was charged in the murder and is scheduled for trial in August.
