Delaware teen reportedly beaten to death by ex-boyfriend, classmate


A second suspect has been charged with the murder of a 17-year-old Delaware teenager who was lured into the woods and beaten to death last month, prosecutors said.Annika Stalczynski, 17, was arrested Monday after investigators discovered she had conspired with Noah Sharp to ambush and kill Madison Sparrow, the Delaware attorney general’s office said.

Stalczynski was Sparrow’s classmate when they both attended Newark Charter High School, the Delaware News Journal reported.

Sparrow’s parents reported her missing on October 5. Three days later, the cops arrested Sharp, Sparrow’s ex-boyfriend.

Richard Prestidge, Sparrow’s father, mourned the loss of his daughter and described her at the point of sale as “wise beyond her years.”

Sharp, 19, admitted to police he killed his ex-girlfriend by beating her with a baseball bat, then dumped her body in a wooded area along Interstate 95, court documents show obtained from the Delaware News Journal.

The motive for Sparrow’s murder remains unclear, but Sharp reportedly said he and Stalczynski planned the murder. The relationship between Sharp and Stalczynski is also unknown.

Stalczynski and Sharp were charged with first degree murder, possession of a lethal weapon in the commission of a felony, and first degree conspiracy.

They were both held on $ 1,021,000 bail.
