Delaware teen allegedly beaten to death by ex-boyfriend, classmate

A second suspect has been charged in the murder of a 17-year-old Delaware teen who was lured into the woods and beaten to death last month, prosecutors said.

Annika Stalczynski, 17, was arrested Monday after investigators found she conspired with Noah Sharp to ambush and kill Madison Sparrow, the Delaware Attorney’s General Office said.

Stalczynski was Sparrow’s classmate when they both attended Newark Charter High School, the Delaware News Journal reported.

Sparrow’s parents reported her missing on Oct. 5. Three days later, cops arrested Sharp, Sparrow’s ex-boyfriend.

Richard Prestidge, Sparrow’s father, mourned the loss of his daughter and described her to the outlet as “wise beyond her years.”

Sharp, 19, admitted to police that he killed his ex-girlfriend by beating her with a baseball bat and then dumped her body in a wooded area along Interstate 95, court documents obtained by the Delaware News Journal say.

A motive for Sparrow’s murder remains unclear, but Sharp allegedly said he and Stalczynski planned the killing. The relationship between Sharp and Stalczynski is also unknown.

Stalczynski and Sharp have been charged with first degree murder, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony and first-degree conspiracy.

They were both being held on $1,021,000 bail.
