Ellensburg Twins Plead Guilty to Trying to Kill Their Father
ELLENSBURG, WA - Twin Ellensburg brothers pleaded guilty to attempting to kill their father at the home they shared.
The 25-year-olds, Caleb and Joshua Bledsoe, were sentenced Friday in Ellensburg to nine years in prison.
They were charged with 1st degree attempted murder, arson and possession of improvised explosive devices.
In a deal with prosecutors, they pleaded guilty to 2nd degree domestic violence attempted murder.
Investigators determined the twins set the house on fire last September trying to kill their father with smoke, but firefighters put out the fire and treated 70-year-old William Bledsoe for smoke inhalation.
William Bledsoe and his two sons worked at Bledsoe & Sons Gutters and Sheet Metal in Ellensburg.
