Mark Redwine Wiki – Mark Redwine Biography
Mark Redwine, who was found guilty of murdering his 13-year-old son in 2012, was sentenced to 48 years in prison by a La Plata County judge on Friday morning.
Judge Jeffrey Wilson said Redwine still took no responsibility for what he did to his son.
He is 59 years old.
Dylan Redwine Murder
Dylan Redwine was killed in 2012. According to an indictment, some of his remains were found about 10 miles from his father’s home in June 2013, and his skull was found more than two years later in November 2015, about a mile and a half away from the first location.
Mark Redwine Trial
Mark Redwine was arrested in 2017.
The trial has been delayed or seen mistrials multiple times since then but finally began in June 2021.
During the trial and closing arguments, prosecutor District Attorney Michael Dougherty argued Dylan and Mark’s relationship was frayed when Dylan flew to Durango to visit his father in 2012. Mark killed his son in a fit of rage just hours later during an argument.
Mark Redwine has consistently denied any involvement in his son’s disappearance and death.
Though much of the evidence prosecutors relied on was circumstantial, Dougherty argued at the trial Mark Redwine killed and dismembered his son, scattered his skull and other remains up Middle Mountain Road from his home, and told the jury that evidence showed signs of blunt force and sharp force injuries on Dylan’s remains.
Sentenced For 48 years
At the sentencing Friday morning, Wilson said he had trouble remembering a convicted criminal defendant that has shown such an utter lack of remorse for his criminal behavior.
“The community needs to be protected from you. You need to be removed from society for a very long period of time,” Wilson said. “I’m going to sentence you to 48 years on both counts, with five years of parole, will be served concurrently. You’ll receive 1,540 days of credit for time served.”
At Mark Redwine’s sentencing, Brandon Redwine, Dylan’s half-brother, said he wanted to clarify that Mark Redwine’s actions alone led him to that moment. Dylan’s older brother, Cory Redwine, said his younger brother is his hero, and he prays to him and dreams of him. He told Mark Redwine’s “selfish ways” had caught up to him.
Dougherty argued that Mark Redwine became enraged and killed his son after Dylan confronted him about photos allegedly showing Mark eating feces and wearing women’s lingerie.
