COOPERSTOWN – The Laurens man accused of killing his parents last December was offered a plea deal in Otsego County Court on Friday.

Kevin Perry, 23, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two-counts of second-degree murder. He previously pleaded not guilty to the charges in February.

Perry was slated to go before a judge for a pre-trial conference on Friday, but instead he was presented with a plea offer from the prosecution. The offer is to plead guilty to the two counts of second-degree murder in exchange for a 25-year prison sentence.

Perry is accused of shooting his parents, 59-year-old Timothy Perry and 52-year-old Solveig Perry, to death at their home on New Road on Dec. 12, 2017. Perry was later taken into police custody following a high-speed chase with Schoharie County sheriff’s deputies.

A court date has not yet been set for Perry to announce his decision on the plea offer.
