Alec Devon Kreider was born on February 4, 1991, and died on January 20, 2017.
He was an American murderer.
Alec was convicted for the killing of three members of the Haines family in Manheim Township, Pennsylvania, on May 12, 2007.
He was 16-year-old high school student at the time, murdered classmate and friend Kevin Haines, his father Thomas Haines, and mother Lisa Haines in their home at night before fleeing.
He was arrested a month later on 16 June 2007, charged with three counts of first-degree murder, pleaded guilty to all charges, and was subsequently convicted on all three counts and sentenced to three consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole.
Later, he became eligible for a re-sentencing hearing following the United States Supreme Court’s 2012 decision in Miller v. Alabama, which held that mandatory sentences of life without the possibility of parole are unconstitutional for juvenile offenders.
He committed suicide by hanging himself in his prison cell before the resentencing hearing was scheduled.
Alec Devon Kreider passed away at 25 years old.
