The man convicted of first-degree murder in the killing of Dee Dee Blanchard will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Nicholas Godejohn was sentenced today to life in prison for the murder charge and 25 years for armed criminal action by Judge David Jones. There is no chance of parole.
Godejohn carried out the murder of Dee Dee Blanchard at the behest of Blanchard’s daughter Gypsy. The defense claimed that Godejohn’s childhood and mental disabilities allowed him to be manipulated by Gypsy Blanchard. The prosecution’s psychologist stated that Godejohn was barely on the autism spectrum.
Gypsy Blanchard, who is serving ten years in prison for her role in the murder, testified at Godejohn’s trial she communicated with him for three years before asking him to help kill her mother.
