Marcus Bordelon

YORK, Pa. — Marcus Bordelon was sentenced to life in prison without parole Tuesday for killing his ex-girlfriend.

Bordelon, a York County man, who plead guilty, admitted to stabbing Samantha Young. He not only murdered her in 2015 in Wrightsville, but he also said he plead guilty to conspiracy and abuse of a corpse.

An emotionally-charged courtroom, filled with unrelenting anger and judgment, family members said they were glad Bordelon was getting what he deserved. Statements ranged from, “I can’t even understand how anyone could do this to another human being,” to “she was my world, I can no longer give her any kisses or hugs.”

Investigators said Young’s body was found locked in a shed along the 100 block of Chestnut St. They said she was stabbed more than 50 times.

Police said Bordelon’s girlfriend, Natasha Stover, conspired with him via text messages to kill Young. Stover is also facing charges in Young’s death, police said.
