Chance Barrett

Chance Barrett entered a guilty plea to the murder of Helen Pasdach and was sentenced to life in prison.

Rogers County District Attorney Matt Ballard submitted evidence and testimony with suggestions that Chance Barrett "is never released from prison."

The request was made in a summary of evidence in support of sentencing that was filed just days before a Rogers County judge handed down a life sentence.

On Aug. 21, 2017, Chance Barrett, who was 19 at the time, "murdered Helen Pasdach in cold blood, in her home," according to county records.

Multiple inmates provided statements, which were included in the report submitted this week.

One inmate said "Barrett laughed when he held up his hand and said 'This is the hand that did it. And that he had no remorse for what he did."

This same inmate quoted Barrett in saying, "You know what's good about using a .22? No blood splatter."

A second inmate said Barrett shared details of the incident with him, too.

"He told me 'like a ninja he snuck a peek around the corner and seen her and shot her in the head' then he busted out laughing…And he bragged how fast he was able to get the shots off," the un-named inmate reported.

"He shot her five times in the head and laughed saying all five shots hit in a space better than a half dollar," the inmate recounted. "He ate some of the Hershey kisses that was sitting in a bowl next to her."

A third inmate said Barrett and told him he was not at all remorseful for killing Helen Pasdach.

"While the description of the shooting made Inmate Number 3 sick to his stomach, Barrett was very calm in talking about shooting Helen Pasdach," the state's report said, describing the interview with the men.

During a recorded video call Barrett made from jail, he reportedly discussed previously committed burglaries and drug use and said when he gets out he needs to do more "crazy [expletive]."

It was with all of this in mind that the state requested Barrett "is never released from prison."

Following sentencing, the DA's office said they're happy with the sentencing as Barrett will be at least 75 years old before he is eligible for parole.
