Nicholas Godejohn Sentenced to Life In Prison


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A local saga looks to have closed its final chapter.

Nicholas Godejohn was sentenced today inside the Greene County Courthouse for the 2015 murder of Dee Dee Blanchard.

Godejohn was convicted of first-degree murder and armed criminal action late last year. He now will spend life in prison for the murder charge and 25 years for the armed criminal action charge. The two will run concurrently. He was given no chance at parole.

Gypsy Blanchard, who was convicted of second-degree murder for her role in Dee Dee’s death, is currently serving ten years in prison.
