In May 2017, Dakota Cunningham entered a plea in Cherokee County District Court to Second Degree Murder for the 2015 killing of Robin Lance Fought in rural Scammon, Kansas. On July 17, 2017, Cunningham was sentenced to 165 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections, an aggravated sentence under the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines. Cunningham’s co-defendant and girlfriend, Crystal Galloway, was convicted of First Degree Murder following a jury trial in the fall of 2016 and was sentenced to life imprisonment. Charges are still pending against Alyssa Bird, Galloway’s daughter, for her alleged role in the stabbing. Bird is scheduled to stand trial in January 2018.
