Mark Redwine found guilty for the murder of his son Dylan in Colorado
DURANGO, Colo. (KKTV) - A verdict nearly a decade in the making was reached on Friday.
Mark Redwine was found guilty of second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in the death of his son Dylan. Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 8. He faces up to 48 years in prison.
Dylan’s family spoke to KUSA right after the verdict was read:
On Thursday, the jury started deliberations for the trial of Mark Redwine. Prosecutors believe the father killed his 13-year-old son in 2012 over photographs. The photos showcase a person allegedly eating feces from a diaper while dressed in a diaper. Dylan’s body was found in the wilderness seven months after he was reported missing. According to the prosecutors in the trial, Redwine’s son Dylan found the photos and Dylan’s brother Cory reportedly confronted his dad about them. Prosecutors believe Redwine then killed his son, possibly tied to the discovery of the photos according to the prosecution.
Redwine’s defense argued the photos have nothing to do with Dylan’s death. The defense also argued a wild animal could have been responsible for killing Dylan.
