A teen has been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to stabbing and beating his younger brother to death after an argument over Halloween candy.
Nicholas Starling, 17, was only 16 when he killed his 14-year-old brother, Harley Starling, in October 2016, the Dayton Daily News reports.
Nicholas Starling pleaded guilty last week, according to Clark County court records.
Clark County Prosecutor Andy Wilson tells the Springfield News Sun the case is the worst involving child-on-child crime that he’s ever seen.
“It was up close, it was personal, if you think about it,” Wilson tells the News Sun. “He took that bat and you know he was feeling the shock of that bat as he hit his brother in the head with it. And to finish him off he walks into the kitchen and grabs a knife and plunges that knife into his brother’s throat.”
While a detective said said Nicholas Starling admitted he had fought with his brother over candy, Wilson said the motive for the slaying was unclear. He tells the News Sun the older Starling had a difficult upbringing was “into some satanic worship and that kind of stuff.”
“Anyone who could do something like this is ill,” Wilson says. “You have to be a sick person to do what he did but that doesn’t mean you are criminally insane.”
