Great-grandson involved in Kennewick woman's kidnapping pleads guilty

Posted: Updated:


KENNEWICK, WA- 17-year-old Dyllan Martin, the teen accused of stuffing his great-grandma into the back of her own car and driving her to Portland, has plead guilty to all of his charges.

87-year-old Hazel Abel escaped from Martin and two other teens about 200 miles away from home after her kidnapping.

Prosecutors argue Martin should spend 14 years in prison, which is about twice the standard for similar charges of kidnapping, burglary and theft.


KENNEWICK, WA- It was a little less than two months ago when 16 year-old Dyllan Martin's attorney requested a mental health evaluation for the teen. On Thursday, February 25, his attorney confirmed the state's report came back from their expert with results from the evaluation. 

While results were not disclosed in court, the attorney asked for a second evaluation to be completed by Dr. O'Neil out of Seattle. The judge approved the individual health evaluation. 

Martin is being charged as an adult for more information on that click here.  The teen will be back in court April 14.
