Release Date: Jun 17, 2013

OBERLIN – (June 17, 2013) – An Oberlin man was sentenced today to more than 17 years in prison after being convicted of murder, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Dylan R. Coryell, 25, was convicted by a Decatur County jury in March on charges of intentional second-degree murder and aggravated battery. Judge Preston Pratt today sentenced Coryell to 212 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections for the murder conviction. In addition, Coryell was sentenced to 13 months for aggravated battery, to run concurrently. The charges stemmed from the October 2011 death of Corey Cook, 22, also of Oberlin, and a related injury to Sarah Campbell.

Assistant Attorney General Nicole Romine of Schmidt’s office and Assistant Decatur County Attorney Margaret P. Mahoney prosecuted the case. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation worked with local law enforcement officers from the Oberlin Police Department and Decatur County Sheriff's Office in the investigation.
