In May of 1998, then 15-year-old Kipland Kinkel killed his parents. He then went to his high school, killed two students, and injured 25 others in Springfield.
He was sentenced to nearly 112 years in prison. Kinkel’s attorneys were hoping to use a US Supreme Court decision made last month which extended its ban on mandatory life in prison without parole sentences for anyone who committed murder before age 18.
