Krahn pleads no contest in triple murder case, gets 150 years

TOPEKA, Kan.  (KSNT) – Joseph Krahn entered a plea to no contest to three counts of 1st degree murder in connection with a triple murder earlier this year.

He will get at least 150 years (three consecutive hard life sentences), meaning he won’t be eligible for parole until at least the year 2167.

Krahn made the plea Friday afternoon in Shawnee County District Court. Krahn was arrested for the deaths of Luke Davis, Nicole Fisher and Matt Leavitt.  Their bodies were discovered in mid-March at a North Topeka house in the 100 block of NW Grant St.

Three others are being held for trial.  The trial for Brian Flowers is set for next March while trials for Shane Mays and Joseph Lowry have not been set.

Kora Liles is also charged with two counts of 1st degree murder, two counts of aggravated kidnapping and two counts of aggravated assault in the case.
