The Missouri Attorney General is applauding the work done by the Missouri State Highway Patrol and his office after a guilty verdict came through in a quadruple homicide in Ripley County.
Keith Boyles was convicted for killing four people and committing armed criminal action.
Along with David Youngblood, David’s wife Melissa Youngblood, and their daughter Chantale Youngblood, Boyles had been involved in those killings in June and July of 2010.
At the time Boyles was dating Chantale, Youngblood had been hatching a plan to move his family to country where they couldn’t be extradited.
To do this, he would kidnap a local bank president to force open a vault.
In order to test Boyles’ willingness and ability to kill, Youngblood had him murder Youngblood’s aunt and uncle.
He would later an elderly couple and burn down their home in a second test.
In 2012, Youngblood was convicted and given four life sentences.
