New sentence for York County Murderer

YORK, Pa. – In October of 1975, Larry Markle, 17, killed Arthur Klinedinst, 72 at Eddie’s Food Market in West York. Markle was given a mandatory life sentence. A recent Supreme Court ruling allowed Markle to challenge his sentence.

An agreement was entered Monday and Markle was given the new sentence of 42 years – life in prison.

“The next step will be his review by the parole board. We will start that process earlier as a result of being sentenced. He should be starting a review perhaps as early as January and if everything goes well he could be released in October of next year, 2017,” said James Burke, Markle’s attorney.

In court Markle apologized for committing the murder.
