PADUCAH, Ky. (WPSD) — A McCracken County teen previously sentenced to 10 years for plotting to kill his mother, caretaker, and his girlfriend’s parents will now serve five years of probation instead.

In January, Kyle Parrish was sentenced after pleading guilty in November 2017 to conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. He has been incarcerated in juvenile detention since he was originally sentenced. He turned 18 last month, which meant he was eligible for re-sentencing.

Tuesday, it fell to a judge to decide whether Parrish would go to prison.

The probation sentence comes with conditions. Parrish is required to work, to receive mental health help, to abstain from drugs and alcohol and to live at home with a responsible adult. He also must keep a curfew of 10 p.m. on weekdays and 11 p.m. on weekends.

He is not allowed to contact Zoe Bryan, the girlfriend also convicted in the case. She was sentenced in April to 10 years for conspiracy to commit first-degree manslaughter and 15 years for second degree arson, with the sentences to run concurrently. She also admitted to burning down her home.

She will be eligible for re-sentencing after she turns 18 in October 2019.
