Kayla Sedoskey murder: Monroe County man convicted after luring victim to abandoned building

A man who was set to go to trial in connection with the 2023 murder of Kayla Sedoskey pleaded no contest Tuesday and was convicted.

Brin Smith, 21, of Frenchtown Township, entered a plea for a second-degree murder charge.

Smith is one of several people charged with murdering 23-year-old Sedoskey, whose body was found wrapped in a tarp at the abandoned Boysville Juvenile Detention Center in Frenchtown Township in March 2023.

Authorities say Smith lured Sedoskey to the abandoned Boysville facility under the guise that they would spend time there alone. Once there, Sedoskey was attacked by her killers.

As part of his plea, Smith will receive a minimum prison sentence of 40 years.

Two other people have been convicted in connection with the murder - Seven Bails Jr. and his wife Narena Bails.
