A Utah teenager who helped a girl hang herself last year was sentenced Friday to between five years and life in prison as part of a plea deal. Sixteen-year-old Jchandra Brown hanged herself in May 2017 at a campground in Payson, Utah, while her friend Przybycien recorded it on his cell phone.
Prosecutors said Przybycien bought the rope and tied the noose Brown put around her neck, and he purchased compressed air that she used to knock herself out before dying. Przybycien narrated as he recorded her death on a 10-minute video. Przybycien had been charged with first-degree murder but agreed to plead guilty to child abuse homicide. He was given 580 days credit for time served in jail.
