On Friday, a Douglas County judge sentenced the second of two shooters convicted of shooting the 2019 STEM School Highlands Ranch, which killed 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo.

Castillo’s father, John Castillo, said the completion of more than two years of proceedings resulted in a slight closure.

“Bittersweet,” he said. “It’s catharsis. But when I get home, the house remains empty.”

June jury Convicted Devon Ericsson on charges of about four dozen, including three felony murders that killed his classmate Castillo. He was also convicted of 31 attempted murders, along with a variety of minor charges including arson, theft, possession of weapons on school grounds, criminal mischief, robbery, and reckless danger.

In addition to life imprisonment for murder, Judge Teresa Slade of the Douglas District Court added an additional charge of 1,282 years.

In a three-week trial, prosecutors used more than 60 witnesses to pre-plan a terrifying school shootout for Ericsson and his conspirator Alec McKinney on a mission on May 7, 2019. I explained how I did it.

McKinney pleaded guilty to one murder and more than 12 other charges last year. Currently serving life imprisonment Plus 38 years. Since he was a minor at the time, McKinney is automatically eligible for parole 40 years later.
