Xbox Killer Gets 2 Life Sentences

19 year old Kyle Sebastian Scott of Colorado Springs has been found guilty and convicted of not one, but two charges of first degree murder. This was on top of being charged and convicted with aggravated robbery — along with a myriad of other things for the murder of a mentally handicapped 22 year old, Jason Holley.

The victim, Jason Holley, went missing back in January 2009. He was found dead months later in North Cheyenne Canyon where Scott had dumped his body. Investigators say that Kyle Scott killed Holley over his Xbox console. Scott is now facing two life sentences, plus and an additional 32 years for his crimes.

Due to the fact that Jason Holley was mentally handicapped, he was what is known as an “at-risk victim.” Prosecutor Shannon Gerhart explained punishments are more severe when it’s “at-risk victims” that is murdered. Gerhart also expressed that she was “happy” justice could be served.

It’s wrong in itself to kill anyone, but to kill a mentally handicapped person — for an Xbox? You must either be crazy or just a downright evil person. Quite frankly, it’s upsetting that Scott won’t be alive for both life sentences and the additional 32 years.

    The killer’s last name is Stott, not Scott. On Sept. 10, 2010, Stott’s brother-in-law was convicted of the same crime and also received 2 life sentences without chance of parole. He also received 32 years for burglary.
    The victim, Jason Holley, had Klinefelter’s syndrome, which led him to be very loving and over-trusting.

    how do you need to give 2 life sentences when you can only live 1?
    Or is life sentence another name for a number of years?

      I think it boils down to parole issues.
