kima

In February of last year Bill, Pauline and Bettye Goggin were found beaten to death in their home in West Valley. Today, the man arrested and charged with their murders is no longer facing life in prison. That’s because as part of a plea bargain the aggravated first degree murder charges were dropped in a hearing Wednesday in Yakima County Superior Court. 30 year old Kevin Harper did however plead guilty to weapons and stolen property charges. But that didn’t satisfy stunned family and friends of the victims like Rocky Falconer shocked at the outcome. Harper now faces up to 15 years on prison, But prosecutors are asking for 7 years. Harper will be sentenced in January. Prosecutor Ken Ram had no comment after Wednesday’s  hearing. There are others still charged in the case. Tennance Buckingham is charged with trafficking stolen property and rendering criminal assistance and Tracy Culton is charged with first degree murder and burglary in connection with the case.
