Teen Sentenced to 20 Years After Murdering Guardians

By Lauren Forsythe  | 

A 16-year-old boy has pleaded guilty and is asking for a 20-year prison sentence in the slayings of his legal guardians.

Christopher Endicott received the sentence during a hearing Tuesday in Metcalfe County.

He pleaded guilty to murder in March 2011 for the deaths Gary and Barbara Holloway.

They were found fatally shot in their home in Edmonton.

Endicott's attorney, Crystal Thompson, said the case was a "tragedy" because of the deaths and because of the life her client lived.

She called Endicott "the victim of a system that failed him."

We'll have more tonight on WBKO at 5 and 6.
