With a surname like “Sheykhet,” it’s possible that the coalburner was a member of the tribe.
Most negroes perceive Jews as whites, however, so attacks on them are often intended to be attacks on us.
In order to save his own life, Matthew Darby pleaded guilty to first-degree murder for taking the life of his ex-girlfriend Alina Sheykhet.
The deal, accepted Wednesday by Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey A. Manning, allowed Darby to avoid the death penalty, which prosecutors intended to seek had the case gone to trial.
Darby, 22, of Hempfield, killed Sheykhet in the predawn hours of Oct. 8, 2017, in her bedroom at her Cable Place apartment in Pittsburgh’s Oakland section. The body of Sheykhet, 20, a University of Pittsburgh student, was found by her parents and roommates that morning.
Clad in a red Allegheny County Jail jumpsuit with a white long-sleeved shirt underneath, Darby spoke only to answer questions from Manning. Asked why he was pleading guilty, he answered, “Because I am guilty.”
Darby was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, the mandatory sentence for first-degree murder.
Darby also pleaded guilty to burglary, theft, trespassing and possessing an instrument of crime in connection with Sheykhet’s killing. In a separate case in which he broke into Sheykhet’s apartment two weeks before the killing, Darby pleaded guilty to trespassing.
