COOPERSTOWN – The Laurens man who is accused of shooting his parents to death last December has pleaded guilty to the crime.
In Otsego County Court on Friday, 23-year-old Kevin Perry accepted a plea offer from the District Attorney's Office and pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder. Perry was offered the deal back in March, in exchange for 25 years in prison.
On Dec. 12, 2017, Perry shot his parents, 59-year-old Timothy Perry and 52-year-old Solveig Perry, at their home at 400 New Road in Laurens. Authorities say the couple’s daughter arrived at the home and found her parents dead, then called 911.
Perry was later taken into police custody following a high-speed chase with sheriff’s deputies in Scoharie County.
Perry is scheduled to be sentenced in Otsego County Court on Oct. 19.
