Life in prison…
That’s the sentence handed down to Aaron Henry Harrison for the 2010 murder of Larry Cline.
“Guilty, your honor.”
47 year old Aaron Harrison pled ‘guilty’ to a charge of felony murder as part of a mediated settlement.
Harrison admitted to killing 64 year old Larry Leroy Cline, who had provided Harrison with a room to stay.
Cline was found beaten to death on December fifth of 2010.
Cline’s truck was missing, and Harrison was photographed using Cline’s credit card at an ATM machine.
“He (Cline) was beat to death in the course of a robbery. Stole his ATM card, and his vehicle.” Noted Klamath County Deputy District Attorney Sharon Forster. “He lost his life for that.”
Harrison drove Cline’s pickup truck to Sacramento, where he was arrested four days later.
Harrison expressed his remorse in court…
“I’m sorry for what I did to Larry’s family…and for what I did to Larry. I did not mean for this to happen.”
Judge Charles Luukinen sentenced Harrison to life in prison.
“I wish I could take it back.” Noted Harrison during the sentencing. “But I can’t.”
Harrison will be eligible for parole in 25 years.
The case hadn’t been scheduled to go to trial until December third.
While Larry Cline’s relatives were notified of the outcome, none were able to make it to the plea hearing and sentencing.
