Plea Agreement in the works in Superior Murder Case

A co-defendant in the murder of a 20-year-old Superior man could face less time in prison as part of a plea agreement.

20-year-old Dallas Robinson has been charged with party to the crime of felony murder for his role in the shooting death of Garth Velin in Superior in September of 2014. 

According to Douglas County District Attorney Dan Blank,  Robinson has agreed to testify against co-defendants Kyham Dunn, who is scheduled to go to trial in January, and Teah Phillips, who will go to trial in February. 

In return for his testimony,  Robinson’s charges would be reduced to Party to the Crime of Attempted Armed Robbery.  

The charge carries a maximum of 20 years in prison- 12 and a half years initial confinement, and 7.5 years of extended supervision. 

Blank says if Robinson holds up his end of the bargain, the State would recommend less than the maximum sentence. 

Robinson’s trial was scheduled to start this week, but has now been pushed back to March 8.
