A second suspect has been charged with the murder of a 17-year-old teenager from Delaware who was dragged into the woods and beaten to death last month, prosecutors said.
Annika Stalczynski, 17, was arrested on Monday after investigators found she had conspired with Noah Sharp to ambush and kill Madison Sparrow, Delaware prosecutors said.
Stalczynski was a classmate of Sparrow’s when they both attended Newark Charter High School, the Delaware News reported.
Sparrow’s parents announced her disappearance on October 5. Three days later, cops arrested Sharpe, his ex-boyfriend.
Richard Prestige, Sparrow’s father, mourned the loss of his daughter and described her in front of the store as “wise beyond her age.”
Sharpe, 19, confessed to police that he killed his ex-girlfriend with a baseball bat and then dumped her body in a wooded area near Interstate 95, according to court documents obtained by the Delaware News newspaper. “.
The motive for Sparrow’s murder remains unclear, but Sharpe claims he and Stalczynski planned the assassination. The connection between Sharpe and Stalczynski is also unknown.
Stalczynski and Sharpe are charged with first-degree murder, possession of a deadly weapon during a crime and first-degree conspiracy.
Both were held on $ 1,021,000 bail.
