Nineteen-year-old sentenced for 2018 killing in Topeka

A 19-year-old Topeka man was sentenced to 30 years in prison for his role in a shooting death and three robberies.

Dion Jha ‘Dantaye Troupe had previously pleaded no contest to second-degree murder and three counts of aggravated robbery.

Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay says Troupe and three others were involved in the February 2018 killing of Tyrone Baggett.

Baggett was shot during a home invasion. He died later at a hospital.

The shooting came less than an hour after Troupe and three others robbed a Daylight Donuts in Topeka.

Two other men have been found guilty in Baggett’s death and the robberies. Erion Dijon Kirtdoll was sentenced to 46 years in prison, while Eli Perry awaits sentencing.
