Dexter-Inspired Murderous Teen Gets Life In Prison

| Filed under: Sad Sad

teen inspired by dexter murders brother


Indiana teenager Andrew Conley told his girlfriend that he wanted to be just like Showtime's serial killer Dexter just a few weeks before murdering his 10-year-old brother.

The 18-year-old pled guilty to the crime and received his sentence of life in prison without parole from Ohio Circuit Judge James Humphrey this week.

"He deserved life, and that's what he got," said Dearborn-Ohio County Prosecutor Aaron Negangard. It was believed that he dwelled on the "horrendous and personal nature of the killing."

The crime was truly sick! Conley chocked his brother while they were playing until he passed out. Then, he took him into the kitchen, put on gloves and proceeded to strangle him for 20 minutes. He put two plastic bags over his head to continue the suffocation and repeatedly banged the boy's head on the ground before loading him in the trunk of his car.

With his brother still in the car, Conley drove to his girlfriend's house and gave her a promise ring!

He joked with his parents and asked his father for condoms the following morning and never admitted to the crime. Conley also admitting to standing over his father's bed and considered cutting his throat while he was sleeping.

"He was a 17-year-old boy and there was evidence of mental illness," said defense attorney John Watson. "It seems to me that some of that could be interpreted differently by different folks."

Conley is likely to appeal the sentence.

    An 18 year old doesn't kill his little brother so horribly because of a tv show. And where these kids allowed to watch an adult show on Premium Paid Cable TV? This is what happen when parents do not monitor their children and allow a bigass older bully to live in their home. Send him packing.

    wow SERIOUSLY? CHOCKED? hahahah you're an idiot. Is this why your job is to be an internet blogger? because you couldn't get a real job with your lousy grammar and spelling skills?

    How is this anything like Dexter?? Dexter kills… other killers. This kid kills his innocent brother. Nothing alike AT-ALL. This kid is 17 years old. He knows the difference. Mental illness my ass. That's what they say when teens and kids do this and they can't explain why. This had nothing to do with Dexter.

    How does one "chock" another person? From now on, just copy & paste, Perezito.

    Dexter only kills killers (and a pedophile.) "Never kill an innocent" is a rule he lives by. In the first episode of the entire series he says he "could never" kill a child. This guy killed an innocent kid - he didn't want to be Dexter. He did it because he's a sociopath. Dexter or no Dexter, this kid would have ended up in the same place he is now.

    That's sick. Sociopaths rejoice.

    The details of this crime are the exact OPPOSITE of Dexter - Dexter kills other killers, NEVER kills kids, and kills them as instantaneously as possible. This kid just wanted an excuse to put before a jury.

    Sounds like a good Republican "family values" Christian love fest.

    kids a nut case - tv or no tv, he would've done this sooner or later - better he was caught sooner than later…………..on a serious note, how could this young man have so much hate in him and his own parents don't even know (or maybe just don't care………..)

  12. 12

    So….he asked his father for a condom the day AFTER he killed his brother? Was that before or AFTER his parents realized the kid was missing? I mean seriously, this story that PEREZ posted doesn't make sense. So, his parents didn't think it was weird to joke about something like that during such a horrific time? And why was he asking for a condom? So he could go rape someone? I mean, WTF??? What did he do with the kid after he put him in the trunk? Keep him there? I mean…this story has a lot of holes but regardless, I'm glad he got life. Well deserved.

    I love (sarcasm) how people try to blame things on TV shows and video games. Dexter doesn't kill innocents… I kinda feel bad for the parents in a way, though their upbringing probably had something to do with it. One child dead, the other probably going to prison… all at the same time, pretty much. Sad.

    Re: buttersball

    You are a moron. Who the fuck cares what political party or religion they were? Grow the hell up you left wing liberal douche. A 10 year old child is dead.

  15. 15

    Dexter only kills people who got away with crimes. Thsi poor kid is just really messed up in his mind. No way this can be blamed on Dexter!

    Re: gorgeous_chik7 – Totally agree with you there are a lot of holes in this story. I mean how could you not notice that your 10 yr old is not in the house, most 10 yr old boys are loud and all over the place so its kind of hard not to notice them missing.

    This is just sick. I mean you don't kill your little brother bc of a tv show. Whether he is mentally ill or not, i agree with the other comments, Dexter did not make this boy kill his brother. He definately thought long and hard about the whole thing.

    Re: Jash14 – Nice point about how quickly Dexter's victims die. Not only are they deserving, they bleed out in seconds. There was pain and suffering when this asshole killed his innocent brother. Blaming Dexter is such a cop out. The worst part is, some morons actually believe the show made him do it.

  18. 18

    I don't see any Dexter inspiration in that, at all!

    It doesn't matter that all the Dexter show lovers think that this is just an excuse. The kid who killed his brother LOVED the show too, he had thoughts and ideas put into his head from the show. Society is influenced by what we see and hear and read. Have any of you dumb asses read Aristotle's Poetics? He was a weak minded kid with problems so the scenes of murder in that show were able to tip him over the line.

    Re: mankymonkey – The thing is that there are a lot of people who love the show and do not go around killing our family members! This guy viciously killed his brother because he is disturbed and sick. If he was influenced by Dexter he would have killed some pedophile or something. Plus Dexter never kills anyone like that. He would have set up the whole thing like in Dexter with all the plastic and would have tied his brother down and before killing him would have cut his cheek, that would have been a crime inspired by the show. It is just an excuse and I am glad he is getting life in prison where he will have to live with his disgusting crime in his mind all the time for the rest of his life.

    Re: Jazz-Hands Chaz – - 17 is old enough to watch a crime show. The difference is that most 17 year olds have the sensibility to realize that it is just a show, and that causing harm to someone else is wrong. Besides, there are plenty of other ways that children hear about crime, w/o watching fictional crime shows. Look at the news for instance…
    … A lot of sociopaths/killers have neuropathological disorders, which leads one to think that this is a prerequisite, more so than the blame lying solely on the parents/upbringing. If you can't feel remorse, nothing your parents do will change that.

    All I see is bad parenting, maybe negligence. Where were the parents when this happened? Did they check on their kids when they got home?

    If your kid is capable of killing his own brother I'm pretty sure as a devoted parent you would be able to see that your kid is mentally unstable before any of that happens.

    I love shows like Dexter but watch them just as shows. I grew up in a family that taught and reminded me constantly what is wrong and right.

    Good thing he got life. I hope he gets a lot of mental help.

    Wow, I can't believe his lawyer said that. Aww he was only 17? Tough shit. His poor victim didn't get to live to see 11. It wasn't even like he got caught up in the heat of the moment. The murder was cold and calculated. It took place over a long period of time and he didn't even give a shit until he was caught. He still seems indifferent to the whole situation. This kid is a sociopath. Doesn't matter how long he spends in prison, he will still be that way.

    This blaming Dexter is BS too. Dexter only kills murderers and criminals, not innocent 10 year olds. He just said that in hopes of using it as a defense at some point.

    Re: mankymonkey – You are an idiot. The show didn't plant anything in Andrew's head. He himself said that he had been having thoughts about murdering people for the last 8 years, long before Dexter was on the air and he was watching bad TV.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he was diagnosed as a sociopath in the future. He still has no empathy for his victim. He would've turned out that way no matter what was on the TV.

    Read up on your history. There have been child murderers for 100s of years. Long before the advent of television. Get bent.

    gross, this kid was going to kill with or without a tv show to blame it on
