The sentencing of a Topeka man was announced today following a 2018 armed robbery and homicide committed on the same evening.
Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay announced today that Erion Kirtdoll, 25, was sentenced to 493 months for the homicide and 61 months for the Aggravated Robbery.
The Court ordered the two terms to be served consecutively for a total sentence of 554 months with Kansas Secretary of Corrections.
On February 16, 2018, officers responded to Daylight Donuts, located at 4201 SW 21st Street just after 1 a.m. on reports of a robbery to the business.
When officers arrived the clerk told them four unknown men, wearing all dark clothing entered the business. One of the suspects was armed with a handgun and ordered the clerk to the ground. The four suspects took money from the business and fled south out of the business, possibly to an awaiting vehicle.
No injuries were reported during the incident.
Later that same night, officers responded to a homicide at a Highland Crest area house at 3500 SE Girard, where four men forced their way into a home and killed Tyrone Baggett with a single shot.
Four individuals were arrested following an investigation: Wisdom Jermaine Curls, Dion Jha’Dantaye Troupe, Erion Dijon Kirtdoll, and Eli Anthony Raymond Perry.
Dion Troupe entered pleas of No Contest to Murder in the Second Degree and three counts of Aggravated Robbery.
In accordance with the plea agreement, it is recommended that Troupe serve a sentence of 430 months. He is scheduled to be sentenced at 1:30 PM on June 27, 2019.
Charges against the remaining individuals are still pending at this time.
