Andrew Conley reads apology statement in court

By Brad Underwood – bio | email

RISING SUN, IN (FOX 19) – 18 year old killer Andrew Conley read a statement today from the defense table apologizing for strangling his ten year old brother Conner to death. Previously Conley stated that it took him twenty minutes to squeeze the life out of Conner.

"I am very sorry for murdering my little brother and I will never forget him and how much he meant to me and how much he meant to so many people," said Conley.

He continued by apologizing to his parents and the rising sun community. However, Conley still did not give a reason for murdering his younger brother.

"I still have no idea why this happened but I really wish I did. I go to sleep every night and wake up every morning and I wish I could change what happened," said Conley.

Conley ended his statement by telling the judge whatever punishment he hands down will be fair, but that he plans on a being a productive inmate in prison.

"While in prison I plan on getting my GED, then getting a college degree in some sort of history, literature, or in some field of astrology," said Conley.

Prosecution Aaron Negangard was not impressed with Conley statement today.

"In our opinion it was a statement of allocution and not subject to cross examination, we found it to be very shallow and insincere," said Negangard.

Judge Humpreys will announce his sentence for Conley on October 15th at 2:00pm in the Ohio County Courthouse.

Conley could receive life in prison without parole, or a number of years in the recommended sentence for murder in Indiana of 45-65 years.
