Fourth Baltimore teen sentenced to 30 years in prison for murder of Officer Amy Caprio
A Baltimore County judge handed 30 years in prison Monday to Darrell Ward, the fourth city teen convicted of murdering Officer Amy Caprio.
Ward, 17, pleaded guilty in June to felony murder. A Baltimore County patrol officer, Caprio was run over last year by another teen in a stolen Jeep while Ward and two others burglarized homes in Perry Hall. The driver, Dawnta Harris, was sentenced last month to life in prison at age 17. The two other teens, Derrick Matthews, 17, and Eugene Genius IV, 19, both of East Baltimore, were sentenced two weeks ago to life sentences with all but 30 years suspended. Ward, Matthews and Genius had each pleaded guilty to felony murder in exchange for 30 years in prison.
Ward also received a suspended life sentence with 30 years in jail.
