The Laurens man who killed his parents in their home a week before Christmas in 2017 will spend 25 years to life in prison.

Kevin Perry, 24, was sentenced Friday in Otsego County Court for shooting and killing his parents, 59-year-old Timothy Perry and 52-year-old Solveig Perry, at their home in Laurens on Dec. 12, 2017.

Law enforcement officials say the couple’s daughter arrived at their home on New Road 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 Schoharie County.

Back in August, Perry accepted a plea offer from the Otsego County District Attorney’s Office and pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder.

Perry’s sister doesn’t have her parents, and now she’s losing her brother as well as he heads off to prison. She also doesn’t have the answers she has begged her brother for through the years.

“So please, Kevin, I ask you to just own up and admit what you did and tell us why,” said Nicole Stilson, the daughter of Timothy and Solveig Perry. "If you won't do it out of the kindness of your heart, do it for mom and dad.”

Solveig Perry’s sister also gave a victim impact statement in court on Friday, which was an emotional appeal to her nephew for answers that may never come.
