TELLER COUNTY – Jacob Patrick Ind, the Woodland Park man convicted of killing his mother and stepfather in 1992 was re-sentenced Tuesday by a 4th Judicial District Judge.

The new sentence is for 60 years, giving Ind a chance for eventual release.

Under the terms of his plea bargain, Ind will receive credit for the 26 years he’s been in prison, including time earned for good conduct.

The ruling comes nearly two weeks after a Dec. 20th hearing in which the judge decided to delay the re-sentencing.

Ind was 15 years old when prosecutors say he killed Pamela and Kermode Jordan. He was previously convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

Ind pleaded guilty earlier this year to second-degree murder as part of a plea agreement. The sentencing range for the lesser charge of second-degree murder is 37-72 years in prison.

This re-sentencing stems from the omission of alleged physical and sexual abuse towards Jacob Ind from his parents during his first trial.

Ind has said the killings were motivated by longstanding physical and sexual abuse. Prosecutors have tried to cast doubt on these claims since they came to light two years after the killing.
